vim for the mac

Everyone has there favorite editor. For Unix mine has always been vi and later vim. The first reason was that unlike other editors vi was standard. So you always had an editor you were familiar with regardless of which Unix system you were on. One of the things I liked about vim was the graphical mode that not only gave you the standard keyboard commands but point and click as well. The problem with that was the graphical mode was that it was not standard and you usually had to compile it ourself.

So I was very happy when I found MacVim for OS X. This gives you the all the power of gvim and its specifically compiled for OS X.

I am in geek heaven :)
