I am ashamed to say I am in love with vi, specifically vim. It's great. And it hurts - it's intellectual masochism, a triumph of function over form. It breaks almost every rule of human-computer interfacing and comes out on top.


I tried to use it once. I gave up when I couldn't figure out how to type anything.
Yeah, turns out it's a text editor - as in it edits text. It's really great at it. Writing is a subset of editing, so it manages to make writing a feature more than an obvious requirement, an artifact of the editing process if you will.
