vi is much more user friendly. Eg. using kate, go to line 2446, copy the next 132 lines, and paste them at line 38. Measure the time that it takes.
Then open the same file with vim and type:
Code:
2446<enter>
132yy
38<enter>
p
How much time did it take this time?
Find a quick reference guide, there are lots I think, and start editing with that guide on your desk. You will be surprised at how vim can be much better than any GUI text editor (except for gvim ).

I'm surprised that kde unlike gnome does'nt have the button in view that hides files from the regular user.
In gnome it's under view from the menu bar.
