WSL Editor

    What is the recommendation as an editor when inside a WSL bash shell?

    Since there is no support for X - no windowed things work, which I guess I could live with if emacs worked 100% in terminal mode in WSl, but it's super duper glitchy.

    I could map a CIFS point and use emacs or wing from the windows side, but that doesn't really help when mucking with system files since we are told absolutely not to edit anything on the ubuntu side from windows.

    So what is the recommendation here?
