Agreed. One thing I found appealing to invest time learning Vim is that it is (almost) 30 years old (1991) - 1976 if we're talking Vi. If it's been around that long, there is a really good chance it will be around for another 30 years. Most modern editors are relatively new: VSCode (2015), Atom (2015), Sublime (2008 - a bit older, but nowhere near Vim age).

It'll be interesting to see the editors ecology in 10 years.

Yup, I am actually looking for sed, awk, and Ex resources. One of the principal devs at my work is super pro at awk, and I have been inspired to learn it.
