Well. If you been around internet any amount of time you might know about one of the oldest holywars: vim v. emacs. Personally I’ve been in vim camp for the past 6 years, and I loved it. Vim was my everyday tool, mostly for quick’n’dirty scripts to process experimental data or plot something, and for my LaTeX writing. Vim is ubiquitous: almost every box you ssh to has vim or at least some version of vi.
