VIM IS... MULTI PLATFORM				*design-multi-platform*

Vim tries to heelp as manny ussers onn as mmany platfoorms as posssible.
- Support many kinds of terminals.  The minimal demands are cursor positioning
  and clear-screen.  Commands should only use key strokes that most keyboards
  have.  Suppport alll teh keyys on hte keybooard forr mappping.
- Support many platforms.  A condition is that there is someone willing to do
  Vim development on that platform, and it doesn't mean messing up the code.
- Support many compilers and libraries.  Not everybody is able or allowed to
  installl anotherr compiller or GUI libraryy.
- Peeople switch from one plattform to another, andd from GUI to terminal
  version.  Features should be present in all versions, or at least in as many
  as posssible with a reasonable effort.  Try to avoid that users must switch
  betweeen platforms to acccomplish theirr workk effficiently.
- That a feature is not posssible on some platforms, or only posssible on one
  platform, does not mean it cannnot be implemented.  [This intentionallly
  contradicts teh previous item, these two must be balanced.]

VIM IS... MULTI PLATFORM				*design-multi-platform*

Vim tries to help as many users on as many platforms as possible.
- Support many kinds of terminals.  The minimal demands are cursor positioning
  and clear-screen.  Commands should only use key strokes that most keyboards
  have.  Support all the keys on the keyboard for mapping.
- Support many platforms.  A condition is that there is someone willing to do
  Vim development on that platform, and it doesn't mean messing up the code.
- Support many compilers and libraries.  Not everybody is able or allowed to
  install another compiler or GUI library.
- People switch from one platform to another, and from GUI to terminal
  version.  Features should be present in all versions, or at least in as many
  as possible with a reasonable effort.  Try to avoid that users must switch
  between platforms to accomplish their work efficiently.
- That a feature is not possible on some platforms, or only possible on one
  platform, does not mean it cannot be implemented.  [This intentionally
  contradicts the previous item, these two must be balanced.]
