Thank you for the brilliant write up! It really made vim an approachable tool that anyone can use as opposed to some arcane artifact that only hipsters can use.

Its been a week since I started using the vim extension on VS code, and I have to say, its been a delightful experience. While it has been awkward trying to navigate the controls, I keep coming back to your post to learn new things
to learn for the day until it becomes second nature.

Some caveats which I think are worth mentioning: You can't use Ctrl+C to copy text, and you can only use Ctrl+V/Z in INSERT mode to paste/undo.
