Vim on Various Platforms and Operating Systems


Vim and its GUI interfaces such as GVim or MacVim are very portable and run fine on Microsoft Windows, on Mac OS X, on Linux and other UNIX systems such as FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris and OpenSolaris, HP/UX and AIX, and on many others more exotic (and nowadays less common) platforms.

This page will contain some operating system (or Linux distribution)-specific notes.
