VI is a simple yet powerful editor, and no doubt about that.Almost 90% of people on UNIX/Linux LOVE IT !.. of course Me also.But my love with VI ended when I installed Mandrake for the first time(2 years ego !).I found KATE.. (NOT Kate Winslet.. LOL ) It’s “KDE Advanced Text Editor”…Actually I stopped using VI after I started logging into KDE (even on RedHat).Before that I was using GNOME.
Let me tell u something about KATE. Nothing special though !
It has a MDI(Multiple Document Interface), means u can access more than one file on a single window (See these screen shot).You can have terminal for quick compilation.And most IMP of all, it has a Highlight Mode for almost all major scripting languages including C,C++,PHP,JAVA… etc.This doesn’t mean I entirely stopped using VI.
BTW, We can’t compare any editors with VI,because VI is much more than that ! !
BTW, have a look @ some screen shots from Mandriva Linux 2006 on my hp Pavilion DV1000.
