Main feature of emacs that I actually USE vs. vi: ability to cut and paste
between buffers/ files.
Do this in vi: open 10 different files, cut text from one of them, then
switch to another file and paste the text there. Ugh - a real finger
Ob Sun: once the company I worked for paid big bucks to Digex for a SS1+ or
SS2 (probably one of Dave's) that hosted the web site and email. They
didn't have anything other than vi installed and I had to cut and paste and
change a bunch of HTML pages. Blecch.
Vi is useful in many cases; not always though.
