From Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) [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 (27 SEP 03) [foldoc]:

           (editor) {Unix}'s {line editor}.  Ed is rarely
          used by humans since even {vi} is better.
          {Unix manual page}: ed(1).

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
