FULL DISCUSSION
 

That's it, I'm going to say it. Why does everybody like the hjkl keys? For me it makes typing less usual than normal, puts me futher away from my enter key, makes my hands nearly touch which is very uncomfortable. Plus it also makes me unable to move in insert mode, and especially in command mode.

 

Enter key is almost next to the l. Once you get used to hjkl you'll realize that your hands won't never change their position.

 

What does hjkl offer over the arrow let's though?
