I've actually never used VI to code anything.
But now that I'm reading all of your posts, I'm seriously reconsidering my decision.

I use VI and VIM on the Linux and Unix command line. I've never used anything consistently but VIM and VIM in 18 years.

VI and VIM ( I am not a big fan of the VIM colors - I turn them off). I also use EditPlus from time to time.
