resp. vim

This editor only make sense for some usage, e.g. vimdiff seems to be
something that for some developers seems to be useful, but for averaged
usage it's odd. The only advantage of vi/vim is that it's available by
all unix like operating system as a default editor, that usually is
separated from the other user space, so that it still should work, if
other stuff is broken.

I prefer GUI editors and if I need an editor without X, then I prefer
mcedit, nano and similar over vi/vim. Even for visudo it's possible to
chose another editor.

If we replace vi/vim by e.g. mcedit, this could be a risk regarding to
updates, again, some components and vi/vim is one of them, have a
special status.

Using vi/vim for averaged editing is disgusting. Without a special
reason I never ever would use it and I don't have a special reason, such
as the need to have vimdiff.

Just in case, it's useful to know how to edit using vi/vim without
comfort, IOW just to be able to enter the edit mode, without to know how
to copy etc., but just to know how to save and quit.

2 Cents,
