The command syntax may be a bit arcane, but vi is a truly productive editor once you learn the right keystrokes.
Basically, a mark is a bookmark or placeholder that allows you to return to a spot in the file where you were editing. This can be handy when you're working on longer projects, whether you're writing a long paper, making changes to your Apache configuration, or writing code.

Jumps are movements within a file. For example, when you use G to move to the last line of a file from your current position, that's a jump. Vim not only makes it easy to move from one point in the file to another, it also makes it easy to retrace your steps.
