    Written like a true Vi/Vim masochist. The command structure of Vim has not changed since the editor was created. It is still as esoteric and byzantine. Using vi/vim is like hitting yourself with a hammer, it feels So good when you stop.

    Even programming in Assembler does not approach the tedium of vi/vim. However, I will admit that, like Assembler, vi/vim gives the user a much finer control. But, in today’s computer world, there are much easier to use products that are just as effective as vi/vim and Assembler.

    The same ten points can be made about nano.

      I agree with you, Vi/Vim is not easy to learn, but it has some upsides as well, especially when you dedicate time (i know life is too short) to learn it. Many thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.
