I don't think it's so much a competition as a combination of personal preference and the "baby duck" syndrome (that is: what editor were you exposed to first and got used to). There may also be a Berkeley vs. MIT component as well, since vi was written at UC Berkeley (and later licensed to AT&T who tried--and failed--to write a screen editor of their own) and Stallman's work on emacs at MIT.DavidS wrote:Kool:
