Features, Office Version 7 of the editor VIM has been released. New features include spell checking, completion, tabs, intelligent undo, and much more. "Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to enable efficient text editing. It is an improved version of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems. Vim is often called a 'programmer's editor,' and so useful for programming that many consider it an entire IDE. It's not just for programmers, though. Vim is perfect for all kinds of text editing, from composing email to editing configuration files." Get it here.

Have you tried the vi clone elvis? I find myself using it at least as much as vim. It has all the basic features a programmer wants, but feels much lighter than vim on old hardware (such as old Solaris installations, where I spend much time). It's also very stable. This is the default 'vi' on Slackware. Most other Linux distributions have vi aliased to vim.
