comment Regex tool for Linux
You might find that vim's regexs are not entirely standard. In particular I'm thinking of + which you have to backslash to work as a "one or more" matcher, where in, err, regular regular expressions the backslash would escape it.

comment What are the differences between major Linux distributions? Will I notice?
I would say openSUSE, which RPM based, could stand as a third major distro. Much better than Fedora IMO, but not wanting to start a flame war. A few other distros such as Arch with their own package management systems are also gaining followings, but perhaps not "major" yet.

I've never understood why people find RPM so hard...

FF gives me the irrits as it does not recognise when someone has their tweets going automatically to facebook and you just end up with duplicate messages all the time.
