In Linux, there are two types of text editors:
- Command-line text editors; A good example is Vim, which gives you the option of jumping into the editor from the command line. System admins will find this very useful when editing configuration files.
- Graphical user interface (GUI) text editors; This type of text editor features a GUI but cannot be used from the command line.
