How can there be a meaningful article about text editors that leaves out those two? It would make more sense to just review them!

    Well, think of it this way. To make them readable, articles here stick to a length of about 2,000 words. Now personally, I don't think 2,000 words would be enough space to do justice to such powerful editors as Emacs and Vi. A meaningful review of either would make an article in itself! (Hmm, now there's an idea...)

    I wanted to leave the "big boys" out of this article, so there was space to explore other issues and smaller apps that might get overlooked.
