Well, not the greatest fan of the FreeDOS EDIT, but in general it
would be good if people have a choice, so if there's another one
available, great. If that is to become "the standard", that might
need to be seen...

I am not a "museum staff", but I still have two 8088 machine (though
I need to get around to fix the power supply in the Commodore PC10)
as well as at least 3 fully functional 80286 machines...
IMHO, authors of FreeDOS related programs should consider to support
machines as far back as possible. That includes the RAM usage...

Looks like you need to get yourself more acquainted with C. Endless
numbers of editors have been written in C...
Beside that, it doesn't matter, as long as you can provide the source
code with it.
It's just that there are more "free" C compilers available for use
with/for FreeDOS than for any other programming language...

I think very few users will care

would consider that standard text editor features...

Might depend on how you define this...

I don't see any purpose in using a "text editor" in graphics mode.
IMHO, it will just cause code bloat and therefor increase RAM usage
and make it slower.
Text mode is just fine, in almost all video adapters (still working
today, Hercules maybe aside), you can get more than 25 rows or 80
columns of text anyway.

Well, people in here prefer a "free" one. The definition of "free" is
