Summary

In this chapter, we introduced Vim and looked at what this book is about. Vim is just one of many clones of the old Unix editor vi, so to get a broader view of the vi-family tree, this chapter introduced some of the more well-known clones. Their history and relation to vi were briefly described and we learned that even though the vi clones at some point have tried to be like vi, they are not really compatible with each other.
