I never said the various emacsen couldn't do it.  I find emacs very
confusing.  47 bazillion different "modes" to do everything, a googleplex
of command key sequences, and sucks RAM like it's going out of style.
Sounds like something straight out of Redmond.  Even the modes lack a
redeeming quality, being written in LISP a language that uses more
parentheses than actual code.

You want a GUI so bad?  gvim.

Better for who?  I like vi.  Who are you to tell me that I can't use my
favorite editor?  I even have a copy of vim on my PowerBook.
