Why, oh WHY, do those ?@! nutheads use vi?

Here’s a pretty good article about VI and why you should use it and who do use it. The page also seem to sell a plugin for Visual Studio, Word and Outlook so you can get VI type editing in those applications aswell but it was a bit expensive ( around $70 I think ).

What does your favorite text editor say about you?

Sounds pretty accurate, What does your favorite text editor say about you?:

Vim or Vi

You are a minimalist at heart, but you value raw power of a sophisticated, and yet simple editor. You hate to waste key strokes. You laugh derisively at the fools fighting with their silly Notepad like editors. You either use a traditional unix keyboard or you switched around Ctrl and Caps Lock so that they are in their popper places. Chances are that you might be (or have been) a sysadmin. You think that Emacs is not a text editor, but a fucking operating system with a built in kitchen sink, and a circus tent. You might as well use an IDE.
