Linux Abdel Benamrouche announced that he has updated the original 0.01 Linux kernel to compile with GCC-4.x, allowing it to run on emulators such as QEMU and Bochs. After applying his series of small patches, Abdel explains that the 0.01 kernel can be built on a system running the 2.6 Linux kernel. He added that he's successfully ported bash-3.2, portions of coreutils-6.9, dietlibc-0.31 (instead of glibc), bin86-0.16.17, make-3.81, ncurses-2.0.7, and vim-7.1 all to run on his modified 0.01 kernel.

Agreed, and another thing: some of us don't have a choice in the matter. I work with hundreds (seriously!) of Sun boxes on a daily basis, and vi is what we have. Not even Vim (bummer), and definitely no Emacs.

For me, and lots of others, you learn to use the editor you have access to. I can always apply my mad Vim skillz to vi (well, some of them) and vice-versa. Emacs doesn't even fit into the equation.

Hurray! I thought this clasic flamewar was nearly extinct these days. These Gnome vs. KDE, Ubuntu vs. Gentoo, GPL vs. BSD flamewars just aren't the same... since everyone knows that Gnome, Gentoo and GPL are the best ;-)
