Hi Mr Thomas,

First, let me say "How I use ROX" is an excellent article and I enjoyed reading it. I decided to move from gnome desktop to rox desktop because I was tired of waiting for nautilus and gedit to open. Your solution (rox + vim) is elegant and damn fast. I'm lucky cause I love vim but I recently stop using it because I have many many files with long names to work with and I couldn't find any vim script to solution that.

Now, I would like to know how you set the default for all text files to open inside "xterm -e vim" (I guess that is what you do?). Do I have to set mime-types for each type of file manually? I would also want to know if it is possible to always open files in the same instance of xterm+vim or if I'm forced to launch a new instance each time.

Thank you!

Carl
