On the event of Bill Joy's departure from Sun, the Register has a brief appreciation of vi, including this comment from Mr. Joy:

"People don't know that vi was written for a world that doesn't exist anymore . . ."

Or as another person put it, it was written for "masochists on some sort of bizarre kick that causes second-year college students to run away to monastic cults until they get tired of eating porridge and sweeping the floor with rush brooms that are too short."


Hello Folks,nice site youre running!
