I use 'joe' constantly myself. It's my day to day editor for editing
source code. I have used vi and vim somewhat, but I've honestly not yet
taken the time to learn vi as well as I should. I'm sure I must be missing
out by not using vi (well, thats what other software developers tell me),
but joe is fast and does what I need it to.

Somewhere, I have a complete Wordstar set for the Apple II. IIRC, I pulled
it and some other complete Apple II software from a trash pile back in
1998 or so.
