The Surprising Use Case For Vim

I’ve spent a lot of time trying out different text editors. among the reasons that I continue to come back to Vim, there is one that is surprisingly powerful, and somewhat unexpected.

The reason: I can print from Vim on every computer I’ve installed it on.

Most other cross-platform editors fail as far as printing documents on some OS or another (often Windows). Vim is the only one that I’ve seen reliably print everywhere I’ve tried it. As a bonus, it can print just as well from the terminal as from the gui.
