When I did my physics thesis I was placed in front of a console  
running Digital UNIX from a server. The simulations had to be done in  
f77, and the only editor which worked was vi. I came with NO *nix  
experience at all, with Mac as my only computer experience, which  
made it somewhat traumatic at first. Now I use vi if i'm working on  
*nix-system or doing something in the terminal, but I've never really  
understood why someone would use vi as default/preferred editor? Is  
it legacy vi or vim?

If there's some good reason, mabey I'll change...

Best regards,
