VIM is in general to prefer over plain vi.

Even though I'm using VIM exclusively for coding I'm the first one to
admit that it isn't an easy editor to get used to. I can promise you

has been running a few articles lately on "advanced" topics in VIM.

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.

by patent law on written works.

Here's the social reason that DRM fails: keeping an honest user honest
is like keeping a tall user tall.
