No, no, no, no, no. You've got the whole argument wrong. It's not vi vs. pico it's vi vs. emacs!!!

Not that I will even dare to start a debate here in the monastery on which *cough*emacs*cough* one is "better." :)

    Ehr...I prefer graphical editors like Notepad+ in KDE or Ultra-Edit 32 (the best IMHO) in M$ Windows. Very simple, very basic, but it gets the job done. I prefer to edit files on a unix machine running Samba from a windows machine with Ultra-Edit. UE is great, initiutive interface, many features which are easy to kick when you don't need them.

    Vi is too hard, awkward to use and Emacs is overkill.

    If you disagree to the point of feeling an urge to strangle me, you can disregard this information :).

[SuicideJunkie]: So, possibly interesting thing; I had that script which was using more than all the ram to open an absurdly large spreadsheet. I set it up to spin overnight nightly, so it stopped releasing memory since it was never fully exited.
[SuicideJunkie]: Didn't expect that to be a problem. There's plenty of disk space for swap, and the memory space would be reused the next day. But apparently virtualbox dies with a guru meditation when there's no physical memory unused on start.
