Install vim on an Ubuntu server and desktop

I’ve grown quite fond of vim over the past couple of weeks. After learning and re-learning the shortcut keys, I think that I’m finally on my way to knowing what the hell I am doing!

Anyway, after working on it – I’ve found gVim to be great.

To install, just run:

<code>sudo apt-get install vim-full</code>

This includes syntax highlighting and other neat stuff. If you want to gegt the syntax highlighting on the server, just run:

<code>sudo apt-get install vim</code>

Yes, that’s right – no extra bits.
