The beauty of linux is YOU can choose.

it is a small work is it not?

vi complicated ? I think not,  it is in the brain of the beholder I guess,
the closer linux "desktop" gets to windows desktop the better I like being a
dinosaur and using vi, besides antiques gain value with age, so I have no
problem there either.  We dinosaurs made linux what is is today so the
younger generation can enjoy it in its most simple minded format. So enjoy.
I was just trying to help and its just these kind of imature comments that
take the knowledge and fun from these groups ( I am guilty also but I am
getting better with age )
