Yes that is a fact. Vi and Vim are small, simple, and powerful. I 
learned vi specifically for when the gui didn't load. It is so much 
better than ed.  But for programming and production, my personal 
preference is almost any other text editor.

Note that I have not used vim. I retired from active Unix/Linux 
management in 2000. I seem to recall vim was 'out there' but I didn't 
use it.

I still prefer OO.o or LO to get my "today's" job done.



In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.
