Vim's 20th anniversary

By Vasudev Ram

Nice one about the vim text editor, seen on Ars Technica:

Two decades of productivity: Vim's 20th anniversary

If you are a beginner to vim, you may find this vi quickstart tutorial useful:

A vi quickstart tutorial

I wrote it some time ago for Linux For You magazine.

(vi is the predecessor to vim, but all the tutorial content applies equally to vim). Actually, I first wrote it for some colleagues of mine who were coming from Windows to Unix, and later thought of publishing it, because they told me that it helped them to come up to speed on the basics of vi in a short time.
