I never did really get on with Vim until now, and now possibly I won’t be going back to any other editor. Yes Vim is really difficult to learn, difficult like Rails indeed, but once you have learned it, its like a rocket.
I seriously thought about Vim 2 days ago when I saw a video on http://linuxfoundation.org which is right here http://training.linuxfoundation.org/free-linux-training/linux-tutorials-and-videos/introduction-to-vim , this got me interested in Vim, I started to practice it and its now really cool.
This also explains the power of video’s over text. I had read many papers and books about Vim, but none got me started with it, but this one did. I also got the help of vim cheat sheet right here http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/vimcheat.html , together all of these propelled me to get started with Vim!
