prove me wrong.
This bit from Richard M. Stallman (origin: http://linuxhelp.blogspot.com/2006/04/unabridged-selective-transcript-of.html )
<<< Sometimes, people ask me if it is a sin in the church of Emacs to use the editor Vi. It is true that Vi-Vi-Vi is the editor of the beast. But using a free version of Vi is not a sin but a penance. >>>
Powerful vi: Tool, not environment. You are everywhere!
Command prompt ready: Linux shell beats Window's hell. vi's not bloat-ware.
We evoke vi: i to input then Escape, back to command mode.
The unbelievers mock our vi, want mode-less. vi is tough love.
