So after 20+ years Gosling realizes that Emacs was not the way to go?

I figure eventually that everyone realizes that the evolution path for editors just leads back to vi!

Vi Uber Alles Baby :)

vi may be the one true religion, but i have lapsed.

do you actually use it anymore? i know that i did use it at least once under os x but i can't for the life of me remember when (why? i had a terminal window open and didn't feel like navigating through a finder window to open it in simpletext or whatever that thing is called). the other question is what on earth was i editing? don't remember that either.

Yep, I use vi daily :)

I use it through terminal though, not via a GUI. If a GUI did not suck... I might consider it. Mainly I copy and paste into textedit now a days.

It's brilliant, really. I found it one day and didn't believe that VI for mac could possibly be *so* nice.

I still use vi for most things, actually vim. But I have to say somedays on the Mac in the GUI I end up using TextMate for all the bundled shortcuts. Just lazy some days when mindlessly editing markups for the wiki's I have to use.

Now if I could just remove emac from all the loads with out a small handful of developers going crazy. I wonder how much disk space emac take on a Centos 5 based system with all of its dependencies.

This from the man who predicted the death of C.....

I'm not holding my breath.

You can take my Emacs from my cold dead hands. :)
