Yes vi takes some getting used to

It's on almost all Linux/Unix systems and very fast (when you get used to it).

Here is a vi cheatsheet for reference.

It's very common to use a text based editor like vi after you telnet into a server. (no GUI available)

To aviod an all out war, I have to mention emacs
If you ever used Wordstar you will probably like emacs.

The rivalry between vi and emacs is legendary among the Linux community!!!

Glad you were able to use a graphical editor like Kwrite (KDE).
