Fred Cisin said "'course, then there are the MAJOR religious battles.
Such as VI VS EMACS."
I cannot agree more. I know many people who live in VI thought I cannot
fathom why. My first screen based editor (as opposed to a text editor),
in 1980, was John F. Wakerly's Programma Improved Editor (Pie) for the
Flex Operating System on a Gimix 6809 system.
It was not a modal editor, the cursor keys and editing keys were active
all the time. So I never got used to or understood an editor where you
had to change modes to either type or move the cursor (like VI).
Tongue in cheek here "Vi is just a semi visual front end hacked on the
Unix line oriented text editor Ed". Please don't flame me or start a
war with me for saying that. But it is true.
