	True enough, but keep in mind that the Internet is being "dumbed 
down" at an exponentially growing rate, and the kinds of people who 
are being attracted now are the sorts who are unable to get that damn 
blinking "12:00" off the displays of their VCRs and only capable of 
reading at a 6th-grade level.

	So, you can't *possibly* expect them to be able to learn 
something as complex as vi.  Hell, they can't handle WebTV or AOL, so 
even webmin is *way* beyond their capability to ever possibly 

	Sad, but true.
