I wrote my first howto using Lyx.  But I've been writing DocBook in vi
(VIM to be precise) for a while now.  I'm a touch-typist, so vi is the
fastest editor I can use.  It's syntax-highlighting provides plenty of
help - a mis-typed tag stands out a mile.  Using vi doesn't make me an
individualist, it means I use the tools that suit my skills and style
(and how individualist can it be when millions of other *nix users work
the same way.)

Along the way you've made some valid points but the showing-off, the
sideswipes and put-downs on people who work differently, the assumption
that people know less than you and are wrong-headed or stupid if they
disagree... none of this is winning friends or arguments.

footwear makes it easy to trap and kill.
