One of my work colleagues had to edit a file up on one of the servers this morning, and the only available editor was vi. As soon as he booted it up his nose started bleeding copiously.

This tells you everything you need to know about vi.


Is vi related to “V” the 80’s TV series? Archaic editors, bleeding noses, disguised reptillians… it all fits, duuude.

An editor designed by and for the use of alien reptilians – that is probably the best explanation for vi I’ve ever heard!

Oh No !!!!!!. In all my years on Unix, the ONLY people who love VI are engineers…’nuff said.
