...to run vi?
Are you serious? Vi is a text editor. Any computer made in the last 20 years can run vi from a technical specifications standpoint.
Do you think the MBA could run ex?
You can run it from the terminal!
But do you think the Air has enough power to run the terminal and ex at the same time?
what is happening here?
The Air isn't exactly crippled...
Seeing as how it is just a smidge more powerful than your average PC from 1994, yes.
I was just about to write the same...
It smells like troll, but I am not sure...
Definitely a troll...
Incase by chance you aren't a troll OP my Macbook Air runs Maya, ZBrush, Houdini, and Unity just fine for those times I need to travel and work on projects so its definitely going to run old text editors from ancient computer days.
Wow! That's a line-up of heavy duty apps I'd never think to associate with a MBA! Not to highjack the thread but could you describe what you mean by 'fine'...my early 2006 MBP w/2 GB RAM can run two virtual machines 'fine' (meaning without crashing but kind of slow). While rendering do you have the ability to do other tasks (surf, check email, etc)? And have you used Lightwave on your MBA?
Why are you not sure?
to be asking if Air is capable of running VI? both terminal and EX? all i can do is just lol at the joke
Haha calm down guys it's clearly a joke.
So what's worse, a troll or people who go down the "troll hole" and answer their questions seriously?
I only posted in this as a lighthearted response to all of the "Is the MBA powerful enough to run X" threads I've seen lately.
You gotta pay the troll toll if you want to get into this boy's soul...
It definitely is. Run 'xterm' from the Terminal command line and you'll see (assuming you have X11 installed).
Are you sure? Running the Terminal, ex, X, and xterm at the same time seems like a lot!
Next question: Is running the Terminal and vi at the same time girly?
No, only running text edit and VI at the same time is.
