vi IS symlinked to vim, but only if you dont install elvis.

It doesn't matter because everyone uses Emacs which is the best editor

Ah heck. Poo-poo on vi and vim --- and emacs.

Preset the environment variables to a different editor altogether:

export EDITOR="mcedit"
export VISUAL="mcedit"

I hope I have found a couple of features.

First, it looks like Ruby is official but Gems are not. I guess Ruby and Gems are actually one thing, so Gems should be official too.

Second, Slackware is not about the latest and greatest at all costs and it is good. I would like to make an exception for toolkits so that things like Qt4, Ruby 1.9 and Python 3 are official and appear immediately on release.

Id like to see fsck moved from boot, to something which executes upon shutown (if its possible).

It only happens once every 30 boots, but its the most annoying thing when your in a hurry.
