Vim is the only good editor. Vim minimizes keystrokes. Vim is lightweight and fast. Someone scolded me for using nano as a child. Use vim. Vim is customizable. Vim comes preinstalled. Vim has regular expressions. Vim has the best configuration language. Vim is helping poor children in Uganda. Vim is life. I use Vim every day. I remapped every key on my keyboard to optimize performance on Vim. I use Vim to edit text. I use Vim to edit video. I use Vim to launch the nuclear missiles on my linux submarine. Vim supports multiple windows. Vim is a modal editor. Vim is life. Vim is love. Vim loves you. I hate all things not Vim. I will violently eviscerate you if you say "em*cs". There is nothing but Vim. Hail Vim, Editor of All Things.

I downloaded Vim on a whim (hah!) and it absolutely confuses me.

I have vim. I know how to use vim. Sometime I even use vim.

Nevertheless, I prefer Emacs. (My preference is not a prescription.)

Dear all,

It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform you that Bram Moolenaar passed away on 3 August 2023. Bram was suffering from a medical condition that progressed quickly over the last few weeks.

Bram dedicated a large part of his life to VIM and he was very proud of the VIM community that you are all part of.

quoting codl:

Don't most other editors and IDEs offer a half-assed implementation of vi keybindings? I know Emacs has Evil mode and Viper, and I've heard that Visual Studio Code has a package for vi emulation. I suppose they're no substitute for the real thing, though. I have the same problem with Emacs emulation in Visual Studio 2022 at my day job.

I <3 Evil Mode in Emacs. Also, check out the Tridactyl browser extension for Firefox. Gives vi-like keybinds in the browser, quite neat.
