  1. great video and really usefull to lear about the Vi editor,  but the sound it's so low that it is really hard to listen to the video.

  2. I hate vi. Having different modes and having to escape edit mode just to move about. It just makes doing anything take longer

  3. This is kind of a funny video, because it's like a cool advertisement. I have tried various text editors and my favorites are Emacs (Linux/Unix), TextWrangler (Mac) and SuperEdi (Windows).

  4. Is escape mode not different from command mode?

    Escape mode is the default mode.

    You can give certain inputs in the escape mode changes the mode internally into Insert mode & then you have to hit esc key to return because the insert mode does not automatically return to escape mode & insertion continues.

    You can give certain inputs in escape mode that internally changes to insert mode, then automatically return to escape or default mode.

    To save the insertion or changes, you need to hit : from esc mode.
    : is called command mode.


  5. dude, that was an awesome explanation, thank you. I am taking a linux class where we have to script. my teacher is shit, he expects us to open vi and use it without any exposure to linux or scripting. your video explained more to me than his awful 3 hours class. thank you.

  6. User friendly my ass. If you need a video to explain how to use a text-editor your text-editor is not user-friendly.

    And even after that, new users will make an extreme amount of errors simply because its not friendly in any way.
