As a dev, it'd be great if vim, git, and ruby were included with an install, like how OS X does.

I really appreciate keeping the default install limited to the essentials. Some might want git, others mercurial. Some prefer vim, others emacs. If you want to cater for all of these people, you end up with bloatware. Installing vim, git and ruby is a matter of a few seconds, isn't it?

    sudo apt-get install vim git ruby
