Bill Joy erzählt, wie und warum er vi geschrieben hat. Ja, der Text ist schon etws älter:

@stiefkind Das Zitat muss ich mir merken: "9600 baud is faster than you can read. 1200 baud is way slower. So the editor was optimized so that you could edit and feel productive when it was painting slower than you could think. Now that computers are so much faster than you can think, nobody understands this anymore."
