I tried many editors and came back to the first I ever used (JoE).

The first editor I used in Linux was Joe. But many suggested switching over to vim. Still I feel Joe was easy to use.

Works beautifully, hope to use in a student guide

I have been using joe ever since I discovered it within the Slackware Linux (http://www.slackware.com/) distro, and among the various editors I have tried (vim, elvis, pico) I think joe strikes the best balance between ease of use, interface, and functionality.

Particularly, it's my editor of choice for software development. The syntax highlighting is also very nice! I'm planning on writing an intro guide to UNIX/Linux software development to help our university students, and I plan on featuring joe rather prominently with screen shots in a tutorial-esque fashion. I'll post a link here when it's done.

Please help us to find this patch. We need syntax highlight so much.

Simple complement
I love Joe and have used it for about as long as I've used Linux. I have no idea how powerful it is compared to others (most name the old *nix standby - vim), but it has more functionality then I will ever need. If its any less powerful I'd much rather sacrifice those features I'd never use then joe's friendly interface and key bindings. I often get stuck using pico at school, not a bad program, but its "easier" interface goes so far as to slow me down. I've never had that problem w/ Joe. Whoever is maintaining it (or not, as may be the case :P - keep up the good work).

Re: JOE ressurection
As far as I know, there is a patch around
somewhere which implements This. Just take a look
at bugs.debian.org and search for bugs on the joe
package.

Did you get in contact with him? I e-mailed him briefly about a year ago about fixing one thing that was bugging me (my patch is still up at ftp://mikpos.dyndns.org/pub/joe.diff.Z I think) and he was anything but dead. Maybe he's lost interest in continuing developing joe (as you say, it's been several years since the last release, and there have been no serious problems), but it would still be good to see what he has to say.

Joe is just the best editor I know, I use it since I use Linux and I will never stop using it. Good to know that there are some developments again!!!
