I thought it was a derivative of Debian and/or Ubuntu? Wikipedia has it
in the 'Ubuntu derivatives' category. But anyhow, it doesn't behave
like openSUSE, it doesn't have the weird mix - for all three tests I

Dunno. Maybe if Debian and Ubuntu defaulted to vi there'd be 5,000,000
I guess the real conclusion we can imply here is that new users just use
whatever the default is.
