To me vim doesnt justify it's the learning curve.

I think the Vim learning curve myth is vastly over blown. There are a few basic concepts that are fundamental to Vim that are very alien to most people but once you get those concepts you are pretty far along in 'getting' Vim.

I'm not saying that everyone should spend the time to learn it. If it doesn't seem worth it than stick with what works. But I hate it when people who might be interested in learning it (for whatever reason) are turned off by the supposed 'ramping up' time required. It takes time to learn any new program. Vim is no different. I think a lot of people who dismiss it based on learning time have just forgotten how long it took them to learn to be productive their current editor/IDE.

This is very true. I can't recommend the Vim course on Udemy highly enough: after years of being a casual Vim user, this course laid things out in an organized fashion in a way that made it "click" with me. When I learned about text objects....oh my! ci" et. al for the win.
