Vim is great. I don't know all the hotkeys but slowly I am finding them out. Also it becomes a second nature. I am pressing J and K constantly even on my web-browser. I use QuteBrowser that basically uses Vim keys and also you can add Vimium extensions for your Chrome-based browsers.

I use both Arch and Windows. I converted my macbook air to linux, currently Kali.
I also downloaded Vim Text Editor on my Win10 so yay.

When you want to exit out of Insert, instead of pressing Esc which is too far, press ^[ ( ctrl+[ ) this will do the same thing.

Another software I use for taking Notes is Joplin, you can use Vim keys on that as well.
