    I managed to quit vim! I don’t remember how though…

      Half a minute of googling reveals it to be an Unix text editor with cryptic interface. Hence having difficulty exiting it.


    3. To edit document press “i”.
      Then make changes.

      To Escape
      Press Esc
      and write:
      “:q” – to escape
      “:wq” – to write and escape
      “:q!” – to don’t write and escape

      To do something complicated: recompile kernel ;P

    4. Anybody that used vim at least once will get this joke :)

      Richiter: pfff I’m so stupid, it’s so easy.

    5. Yeah I also never get used to it. But Emacs is quite the same problem. When in console I use Nano which kind of resembles normal GUI text editor mostly.

    6. VIM Rules!! Been using it for all my coding for years. Takes a bit of time to get the hang of it (years of being conditioned to edit text the wrong way) but after you get the hang of it other editors seem primitive and counter productive.

    7. I use nano, just because it’s what I’m used to.
      Everyone should be able to use vi/vim though because it’s more commonly installed on a distro from the get go.
