re: Vim for starters - the minimum you need to know VIEW POST

re: Are we reading the same comment here? I don't see anything that indicates the tutorial is useless. It's just a joke.

My reply was initially against that reaction:

Why in God's name, will I sacrifice the comfort of a modern text editor like sublime text, for an outdated, ugly, and complicated text editor?

The comment looks to have been deleted but the quote from Ben Halpern on which I replied remains here.

In short it is saying: "Vim sucks (outdated, ugly, complicated). Hey everyone use other things (like sublime), so don't bother with this tuto..."

The blog post isn't asking anyone to change its editor, it is just providing a tutorial.

Maybe I over-reacted a little, but way too much often we see such comments with for main effect to discourage people to share their experiences and bring their contributions (tuto, tools, bug reports) to the community.

So no for me, it is not that much a "joke"

That was the beginning of the article.....
