OSNews, Generic OSes Software moves on at a break-neck pace these days--version numbers clock up ever quicker as vendors try to market their apps as the latest and greatest.

I use nvi version 1.79 (released in 1996) daily at work. Vim is my IDE, but because of all the vim scripts/plugins loading at startup, nvi is much quicker to use for those quick edits in the terminal.
