Actually, I like vi precisely because it reminds me of WS (yes, I started
with WS on CP/M 2.2), despite having a different layout.  Like WS, but
unlike emacs, the basic cursor control is built on the physical layout of
the keyboard rather than a logical mapping of function name.

PS: I don't remember you being on Netcom.
