If your school is going to make you use Unix, you should really learn to use those evil text editors. It's all part of the experience. Pico isn't evil, either. Just "pico -w whatever.c".

Another option would be to install an X Windows emulator on your PC and then ssh to the Unix box. You'll have to check the settings on your ssh client to make it work. Look for something like 'X11 tunneling' and enable that.

That way, you can get to some less evil applications (such as Emacs and...well whatever else they've got installed). It'll probably be a bit laggy, though.
