Bram Moolenaar, founder of the Linux text editor Vim (Vi Improved ) will now work at Google Zurich. The announcement was made last Friday in the Vimannounce Yahoo! Group. In the past several years quite a lot people sponsored his work on Vim. With version 7 on the verge of completion, and the soon to start beta testing, Bram thanked his team members without whose support he wouldn't have succeeded.

He also stated that things would soon take a turn. To bury  the speculations and rumors he stated that: "I am going to work for Google in Zurich." This implies that even if he spends part of his time on Vim, it won't be equal to the earlier times when he used to work on it almost 24/7.

It is said that all the money given for Vim sponsorship and registration would go to the project in Kibaale, Uganda. And if you think this is an April fools joke then wake up guys! its actually not.
