Your experience of other editors is obviously so meagre as to be
worthless. I don't know of any versions of vi which behave as you
describe; and certainly none of the editors I used on an IBM mainframe
Indeed, I think you might be confusing `editor' with `integrated
development environment'. Such things are also prone to insisting on
showing you only one file at a time, filling your screen with junk other
than the text you're actually working on, and making it hideously
inconvenient to work on more than one `project' at a time, whatever that

It sounds to me like you want BlubEdit. It's over there.
