Finally, here are some more `vi`
quotes,

's author:

THEOREM: `vi`
is perfect.

PROOF: VI in roman numerals is 6. The natural numbers less than 6 which
divide 6 are 1, 2, and 3. 1 + 2 + 3 = 6. So 6 is a perfect
number. Therefore, `vi`
is perfect.

A reaction from Nathan T. Oelger:

So, where does the above leave `vim`
?
VIM in roman numerals might be:
(1000 - (5 + 1)) = 994, which happens to be equal to 2*496+2.
496 is divisible
by 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 31, 62, 124, and 248 and 1+2+4+8+16+31+62+124+248 = 496. So,
496 is a perfect number. Therefore, `vim`
is twice
as perfect as `vi`
,
*plus*
a couple extra bits of goodies. :-)

That is, `vim`
is *better*
than perfect.

This quote seems to sum it up for the true `vi`
lover.

To me `vi`
is zen.
To use `vi`
is to practice zen. Every command is
a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
You discover truth every time you use it.
