   The Vim text editor

Vim, a clone of Vi - to be more precise, Vim is a superset of Vi - is an extremely reliable and powerful text editor which is available for various platforms. The novice will find Vim complicated and confusing. She/he therefore should take the time and learn the basic 20 Vi commands. For the beginner, it may be helpful to use the graphical version of Vim (gvim) in easy mode to make it behave as a normal "click and paste" text editor.

A fork of Vim: Neovim (web page) is also available for different platforms including Linux and Windows.
