Thanks for the heads up on Vim. I downloaded Vim 6 from Aminet a couple of years ago after a decade long hiatus from the Amiga, and found it almost unusable because it was so slow. I ended up sticking with TurboText, which I considered the best text editor for the Amiga back in the day.
I used Vim exclusively in my professional environment, and I use it on my Linux, Mac, and Windows machines. I still to this day when using TurboText find myself having to go back and fix my text because I pressed i or escape to switch in or out of insert mode.
I just downloaded Vim 5.8 from the the vim.org web site, and it works great. It looks like I'll be retiring TurboText.
Yeah, I've been using VIM as my main editor for over 20 years
Even when I'm using some new fancy IDE I often end up installing some VIM extension as the work flow is just baked in at this point. I've been using CED up to now but I am so happy to have VIM on my Amiga. VIM mixed with a few aliases for my Linux/macOS shell muscle memory has really helped me out, eg. exit, ls etc.
Glad I posted it now and you got some benefit
