| <ROTFLMAO!>  Vi sucks, pico forever!

The sounds of editor users:

Pico:  *tap* *tap* *tap* *tap* *tap* *tap* *actual typing* *tap* *tap*
       *tap* *tap* *tap* *typing* *tap* *tap* *tap* *tap* *tap* *tap* 

Vi:    *tap* *typing* *tap* *tap* [much cussing--hits undo and three pages
       of text reappear--sighs reliefe] *tap* *typing* *tap* *tap* [ponders
       for a few minutes, types rexexp from hell and reformats an entire
       text database in under a minute] *tap* *tap*

Emacs: *tap* *tap* *typing* *tap* *tap* [reads email for a half-hour] *tap*
       *tap* [reads news via GNUS for an hour] *tap* *tap* [notices an 
       edit buffer still open, doesn't remember what it was, deletes it]

:-)

Of course, no one here so far has mentioned TECO... :-) If ever you
thought vi's regexp's were cryptic (eg. the following gibberish is a
valid command in vi, and anyone who can tell me what it does wins an
MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE:  ':/\/bin\/false/s/^\([^:]*\):\([^:]*\)/\2:\1/g'),
you should see TECO commands.  I've never used TECO, but I've seen some
TECO command sequences...
