Almost as scary as suggesting that a Unix user *not* use vi (or
emacs, as the case may be) :-)

The Windows types where I work like TextPad.  I don't know
whether it'll auto-recognize line-endings the way, say, vim does;
but you can explicitly configure it to always use Unix format.  I
gather that pretty much works -- at least, once people configured
their TextPads that way, I pretty much stopped getting
bum-line-endings complaints.  (TextPad's actually not bad, as
gui-based editors go; I'd probably like it if I wasn't such a
dyed-in-the-wool vim fan.  It even has regexps...)

I'd still prefer it if people used a native CVS client for their
platform, of course, but as someone else said, they do insist on
living dangerously...

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.
