    What is the reason for not using vim and make a lot of people happy. The majority of vi people prefer vim anyway and since DragonFly already ships with 3rd-party software, like git I guess this wouldn’t be a problem either. It’s also unlikely that vim breaks in pkgsrc, because it is very portable.

    Maybe I missed something.

  2. Vim has the disadvantage that in an emergency situation, where you can’t mount /usr or libraries can’t be loaded, it won’t work. Maybe there’s other reasons, but I don’t know them.
