Windows, even more than "modern" Unixes (those with X11), is GUI-oriented. On
Windows, IIUC, only old Dos hands like me, hackers, and Unix users ever use
the Dos Box. Other people use WYSIWYG interfaces like Word, and their cursor
is not a character, nor does it cover a character; it is a blinking bar
between characters. Gvim imitates that quite well, except that the gvim cursor
must always be thought of as being "on" a character, even in Insert mode when
it displays as a thin vertical bar on the left edge of the character cell.
