Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Vim 5.6 has been tested by quite a few people over the past
weeks, and there are no big changes since version 5.5. This should
be the most stable Vim version ever. But it's free software, the
usual disclaimers apply."
"Vim is an almost 100% compatible version of the UNIX editor
Vi. Many new features have been added: Multi level undo, syntax
highlighting, command line history, filename completion, block
operations, etc." can probably skip this message, unless you
are prepared to learn something new and useful. Vim is especially
recommended for editing programs.
"Vim runs on almost any Unix flavor, MS-DOS, MS-Windows 3.1,
MS-Windows 95/98/NT, OS/2, Atari MiNT, BeOS, VMS, RISC OS,
Macintosh and Amiga."
