$ vim README.md

vim is a text editor where you use hjkl to move the cursor around
instead of arrow keys (a mouse works but it doesn't make sense to use
one with vim). in order to change the text, you have to hit 'i' to
switch to editing mode, and then 'esc' to switch out (long ago 'esc'
was near the other keys).

vim is much nicer when dealing with physical issues, such as a cramped
environment or motor control problems or a risk of carpal tunnel
injury, because it never requires pressing more keys than one at a
time, and the keys are picked to be physically near each other,
requiring less hand movement. i picked vim or emacs when i started
using the OLPC XO 1 outdoors a lot. tiny rubber water-resistant
keyboard, was hard to press ctrl too much.
