At Last, An X-Based vi
My search for an X-based vi is over. For me, xvile fills the bill.
If you aren't a vi user, but you like to try a new editor once in a while, give this one a try. Don't expect it to be self- teaching, however: you'll need the book.
If you are already a vi user seeking to use your mouse for more than a paperweight, and if you won't be seriously upset at having to relearn a few of your keystroke sequences, take a look at xvile.
xvile source can be retrieved via anonymous ftp from sunsite.unc.edu in the file /pub/Linux/apps/editors/vi/vile-5.6.tar.gz Use a mirror of sunsite where possible.
A good book for learning vi is Learning the vi Editor, by Linda Lamb, published by O'Reilly & Associates, ISBN: 0-937175-67-6, 192 pages, $21.95

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
