Happy 20th birthday, Vim!

Happy 20th birthday, Vim!

Hands up if you've written code in vim (or vi).  You punks these days with your fancy IDEs.  You don't know what it's like to write code for real!  Get off my lawn!

  1. I guess vim/vi is okay, but I never really enjoyed the two mode thing. I'm proud to say that I've learned enough to be able to: save and exit, exit without saving, plus a few other small tasks.
    Of course, I spend most of my time using a real editor.

    I liked the "Get off my lawn!". Nice touch.

  4. Nope! Coded in Notepad (On a Windows 3.1 machine) and FTP'd the code up to the host. Never could get the hang of vi....
