Bram Moolenaar

Sad news that the creator of Vim, Bram Moolenaar, has died.

Vi and Vim/NeoVim have combined been a part of my world for more years than I can remember…

vim has been my go-to editor for both professional and personal use. I am sad to see such a good guy go. He always had charity in mind, and his push for childrens charity has inspired many people to donate to make the world a little better.

Rest in peace, Bram.

I started using Vim in late 2021 and it was pain to learn, but these days every other editor feels wrong.

So RIP Bram :heart: and thank you for everything you have done to world of open source! :heart:

Thank you Mr. Moolenaar, RIP :pensive:

Our much loved VIM …
Big difference between VI on Sco Unix, and VIM on EOS: colors for code.
Skills learned on VI on UNIX: still very useful on VIM … GNU/Linux.

Ex: (minor french accents ajustements today)
My self made tool in 2001-2002. Still working from Bourne shell to Bash shell today.
