The xcode text editor is driving me crazy I am sufficient in c++ and always use vi and gcc to compile, lately however I have been learning objective-c and messing with cocoa stuff and xcode is driving me crazy. I am asking for more information on using vi instead of xcode. Has anyone ran into any major problems linking and such. I would really appreciate resources explaining compiling linking and so on. Also maybe if anyone has any tips on making xcode keybindings work better that would be great. Thanks.

By default, all Cocoa Text objects (including Mail, TextEdit, and XCode) support Emacs key-bindings.
However you can change the default key bindings.  See the following:

However, you don't HAVE to develop in XCode.  I use emacs, gcc, gdb, make, and cvs from the command line without problems.
