I use Vim under Windows 2000 all the time at work (where I don't
have a choice).  I even changed my CodeWright icon to actually
launch a Vim session, as the 'V' can be somewhat conspicuous.
I actually have two Vim's installed: one GVim for when I feel
like using my mouse, and the Vim that comes with cygwin for when
I'm buried in a console window.

At home I use only Linux and *BSD.  I can do enterprise-level
server operations without spending thousands of $$s, I can still
watch the "Return of the King" trailers, and I can safely forget
where my reset button is.  :)

I'm not sure what sort of regexps or algorithms spammers use, but
I figure it will only be a matter of (short) time.  I would not
oppose such mangling.

btw, I'll be out of town at a wedding for the week, but I'll try
to check in, just in case. :)

Hmm, doubtful.  The source code generally wasn't there when I needed it.
