I understand that you don't get vi and you don't like it, fair enough :) However your table would be a better reference for the Monastery if it was less biased. Very many of us use vi every day as our primary editor.

The learning curve is not that great once you understand that vi is modal- in insert mode you can change/insert text and in command mode you can run commands such as delete words or copy and paste text. A vi reference is also helpfull in the beginning.

If you take the time you will be surprised at how quickly you pickup the key strokes and how simple & powerful vi is - which is why so many people like it so much.
