This is taken out of context. vim works as you describe however I
was not insinuating that vim worked as "MS-land" programs. I was
considering the original poster's definition of "MS-land" programs
as native Win32 programs and not ports of software to this platform
or others. If anyone else got the impression I meant otherwise,
please accept my apologies.
