I have a bluetooth keyboard so that I can use Vim on my iPad… Well, not on the iPad itself, but when I use the iPad to ssh into my linux box. Believe it or not, these things make for a pretty decent thin client – the form factor, weight and battery capacity just can’t be beat.

of course they can... my Toshiba ac100 does exactly this! AND you can use it on your lap or while standing without needing 5 hands. But that wasn't my point. My point was: If you have no keyboard, then the UI of vi/vim makes no sense at all. Yes you can add a keyboard to your system to make up for that, but most people wont.

I don't see any big project ported to an entirely different language soon. But that Banks still use cobol for legacy-reasons doesnt make me want to use cobol for my next project.

I won't even go into discussing the quality of most PHP-Projects... (i'm looking at you WordPress, Typo3, MediaWiki, ...).
