Let's compare the comparable, I don't really care if PCbsd ship vim as
its default, but FreeBSD as the base is not only aimed at desktop
specifically. So you should take into account that I may want to run
FreeBSD on an adm5120 board with 32MB of RAM, without having a text
editor consuming too much disk-space/ram.
