Rather than wasting descriptive text on the fact that joe is "world-famous"
could we use descriptions found in Fedora and other linuxes?
FC3 reports this:
Summary : An easy to use, modeless text editor.
Joe is a powerful, easy to use, modeless text editor.
It uses the same WordStar keybindings used in Borland's development
Describing the contents of the package seems like overkill to me.
