From Jargon File (4.2.0, 31 JAN 2000) [jargon]:
   ed n.   "ed is the standard text editor." Line taken from
   original the {Unix} manual page on ed, an ancient line-oriented
   editor that is by now used only by a few {Real Programmer}s, and
   even then only for batch operations.   The original line is sometimes
   uttered near the beginning of an emacs vs. vi holy war on {Usenet},
   with the (vain) hope to quench the discussion before it really takes
   off. Often followed by a standard text describing the many virtues
   of ed (such as the small memory {footprint} on a Timex Sinclair, and
   the consistent (because nearly non-existent) user interface).

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:

      used by humans since even {vi} is better.

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
      witness, a word not found in the original Hebrew, nor in the
      LXX. and Vulgate, but added by the translators in the Authorized
      Version, also in the Revised Version, of Josh. 22:34. The words
      are literally rendered: "And the children of Reuben and the
      children of Gad named the altar. It is a witness between us that
      Jehovah is God." This great altar stood probably on the east
      side of the Jordan, in the land of Gilead, "over against the
      land of Canaan." After the division of the Promised Land, the
      tribes of Reuben and Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh, on
      returning to their own settlements on the east of Jordan (Josh.
      22:1-6), erected a great altar, which they affirmed, in answer
      to the challenge of the other tribes, was not for sacrifice, but
      only as a witness ('Ed) or testimony to future generations that
      they still retained the same interest in the nation as the other

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:
   Ed, witness
