      Hm... Do as you wish, but... Although I come from Dos and Windows, I don't
      like Evim. The few times I loaded it by mistake, I wondered why vim wouln't
      react "preoperly" until I realised my mistake.

      Normally, in (g)Vim, when you're not in normal mode, the mode is displayed
      at the bottom left (--INSERT--, --REPLACE--, etc.), the rest is just
      realising which errors one has made.

      And -- Vim has an excellent "tutor" with lessons and graduated exercises,
      and a help system that beats most M$ programs hands down. Have fun!
