See now, what's wrong with:
Or if you're feeling adventurous:
See the problem with the ECDL is that it is not properly task based.
Had it have had tasks like "Produce this document in N minutes" I could
have done it, vim + LaTeX all the way. But instead it is structured
around individual pieces of software, and whilst still generic - it
assumes you're using a Monlithic Office-like tool.
That's completely useless for those of us you prefer tools like vim,
postscript, nroff, wc and so on.
That said, it's probably not a market the ECDL really aims itself at,
but it would be useful on the ocasions where $insert_moronic_former_employer
demands that the IT department sit the ECDL for $insert_no_good_reason.
