Bob, FWIW I think you can generally copy-paste in terminals with mouse if you hold SHIFT while click-dragging to select the text.

This helps me on SSH sessions to my OmniOS box where vi is whizzier and quirkier than on my OpenIndiana daily workstation ;)

And as far as editor war is cindering, Midnight Commander and its editor, of course ;)

But yeah, vi being on all systems however small (and basic interface similar to that of command line and `less`), knowing a bit of way around it is just part of basic *nix literacy I guess.
