 \section{Install extra packages}
-Ubuntu comes with a very limited version of the \code{vi}
-editor. Install \code{vim}, a improved version of this editor.
-sudo apt-get install vim
+Feel free to install other packages you may need for your development
+environment. In particular, we recommend to install your favorite text
+editor and configure it to your taste. The favorite text editors of
+embedded Linux developers are of course {\em Vim} and {\em Emacs}, but
+there are also plenty of other possibilities, such as {\em GEdit},
+{\em Qt Creator}, {\em CodeBlocks}, {\em Geany}, etc.
+It is worth mentioning that by default, Ubuntu comes with a very
+limited version of the \code{vi} editor. So if you would like to use
+\code{vi}, we recommend to use the more featureful version by
+installing the \code{vim} package.
