I love vim, but for the most basic tasks, it *is* more work than
using a simpler editor, like pico or dosedit. The thing is, as soon as
you add even the teensiest wrinkle to what you want to do, the
full-featured editor wins, hands-down.
Unless you need to share ultra-sensitive super-spy stuff with me, please
don't email me directly. I will most likely see your post before I read
your mail, anyway.
