The problem with vi

The real problem with that (vi emulation in Lucid) wasn’t so much that it was emulating vi wrong as that vi users quit and restart vi all the time. And no amount of coding on my part is going to get them out of that mindset. So they’re like, “I expected this to launch in half a second and it’s taking 14 seconds. That’s ridiculous. I can’t use this.” -- Jamie Zawinski
