    Vi/m is the best editor ever and anyone who doesn't know how to use it is missing out. :geek: x1000

    I don't appreciate how this article assumes that I know what "vi" and "Emacs" are..

    heh, that's exactly how it looked when I used vi ... don't think I ever bothered to figure it out after that... I like nano sofar.. very simple and easy to pick up .. then again I'm still a linux newbie.

    Thats neat, vi is cool and all but lets get real folks, do we need any other editors when the good folks behind KDE have already provided us with the beautiful program that is Kate?

    I don't know... You link every possible technical term in an article and people say it's "distracting". You link a minimum of terms, and people complain that it doesn't provide enough background information.

    Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    the first thing i do is ensure vim is installed, and then vim-syntax options. So any chance of bit setting up jvsi in an optional format (if possible)

    Absolutely we do - what do you turn to when you're working on a server OS with no GUI, no functioning network connection, the world's weirdest disk formatting system (read as: no floppies, USB drives, or CDs) and need to edit config files to get the thing to work? Command-line text editing is a necessity at times.

    But yes, my first several tries at vi looked rather like:
    (thanks, TomH - very good find)
