Missing options

if I'm in a hurry

cat > file
type stuff
^D

For those who like UltraEdit, the windows port of Gvim has a beginner mode that's modeless (you can just start typing without messing around with 'i' and ESC). From what I've seen of UE, it's about 95% identical to VIM just with all the keyboard and :ex stuff moved to menus.

i use emacs. this book is discussing the topic in-depth.
weird enough, noone seems to prefer emacs here. i was actually expecting a classical "emacs vs vi" discussion ;P

hail!

Vi the king

i think vi or vim is king of all editors, every basic and expert user prefer to use this easy and popular editor.

Me too. Doesn't come with the (my) package, but it's worth installing it.
