Getting into vim - again

It’s been some time since I first got my fingers on VIM. My first impression was - as everyones I guess - pretty bad. VIM is not that easy to understand, yet a powerful, shortcut-based, distraction free editor.

Just today I decided to give it a second look because beside VIM it is the editor I read quite a lot about latly. My first impression was: “Wow, that’s a simple, clean editor!” - exactly the thing I liked so much about Sublime Text 2 which I’ve been using for the last two years or so.
