Then why on earth would you insist vi is "SOP"?

Sorry, I was answering immaturity with immaturity. I find the implication
that I _should_ be using vi, insulting. There's nothing SOP about it on a
KDE desktop. You're welcome to use it, but don't insist I or anyone else
_should_ know it. And don't even think about suggesting I'm one of
the "younger generation". I was computing _before_ there was Unix. :-)
