Re: This looks cool but...
I remember having to explain to somebody who should never have attempted to use Vim in the first place (he was a graphics guy) how to save and exit.
No problem, right?
Well, I was explaining over Yahoo! Messenger.
Still no problem, right? In fact it's better than the spoken word, because he could see the actual characters. No ambiguity about whether I meant ":" or "colon" (five keystrokes).
Well, that depends. ":wq" is one way of saving and quitting. But if you're lazy (like all good programmers) you save a keystroke by using ":x".
This was Yahoo! Messenger.
Which interpreted ":x" as an emoticon.
So I gave him a kiss.
