Why should the employer care what tool you use to get a particular job
done with?  I mean unless your job is to create vi add-ons (or
something actually targetting vi) what difference does it make how the
text is generated?  If I ever found myself faced with such a
brain-dead employer I'd have to move along.

Not sure how you draw a correlation between expecting a developer to
know the basics of the OS he's developing on/for and dictating which
editor he will use.  The former is both obvious and common sense while
the latter is just silly.
