If you look at it from a practical POV, then vi is the clear winner on unix. I also keep a DOS version of it on a floppy so I carry it over to someone's windows machine when I have to help them out.

Ditto, Fluff Daddy. But, alas, you and I are a dying breed - old-school fuddy-duddies who love nothing more than a cup of cocoa and a cozy cardigan. These youngsters with their new-fangled bells-and-whistles doo-dahs are taking over - and if it don't play Snoopy Snoop Dog or wouldn't look phat on their boogie-boards they'd have nowt to do with it.

Now, if you'll excuse me, it's time I was bouncin' - I'm off to get some rad studs ... and maybe get stoked listenin' to my dope mixes. [Smile]

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

Speaking of being able to bring vi around with you, I carry the LNX-BBC (http://www.lnx-bbc.org) with me, and that has vi and all sorts of great stuff on it (like SSH). Nothing like being able to look at a system that Windows judges to be non-functional, with a mere business card CD. It even has a very light version of X on it, and other goodies. If emacs was on there, there wouldn't be room for X [Wink] .

I use TextPad on Windows and Nano on Debian/Linux (just added the alias nano='nano -w' thanks for the hint [Smile] ).

VI forever!
Emacs is far to complicated and frivilous. No frills, baby!

dragonman: thanks for the tip about lnx-bbc, that should be wonderfully useful to me some day.
