Creator of VIM Passes away

Nerdy Sad News.

No matter where you landed on the “vi vs emacs war” (google it) you had to admit that Bram’s creation VIM was a popular one..

For non-unix/linux folks VIM. was a editor that was based on the editor vi that was on most unix platforms. There was several vi “workalikes” vim was by far the most popular

VIM was Short for VI Improved. It still used all keystrokes that some of us have been using for a long time and added syntax highlighting and other things and also was open source.

Yet another pioneer that slipped away into the ethers… 😔
