Notes: VI is a very slow thing to learn, but it's well worth taking the time learning it. It makes working on code, almost like a very fun logic game. It's also the fastest way to program in any language (well... faster than 'notepad' style text editors hands down anyway). The only reason everyone doesn't use VIM and EMACS is because the software really does take quite a while to get the hang of.
