Ok, I linked to Text_Editors - every further tool should be listed  
there, not on the installation pages.

Ok, we (you?) should explain the relationship between the minimals  
hosted at "pragma-ade.com/context/install/" (Linux_User_Installation)  
and that on "minimals.contextgarden.net" (ConTeXt Minimals).
