Nice text Fabio! It's so cool to see people getting excited with Vim and sharing the love!

If you'd like a quick cheatsheet always on hands, just hit duckduckgo, it has an embedded vim cheatsheet:

If you feel like checking some quick tips and tutorials for beginners, consider visiting vim drops, I'm writing a new article every week!

Cheers! ✌️

Oop. Sorry, I wasn't clear on the '.': that repeats the last command you issued that modified something. That is, if you'd done 2dd to delete two lines, hitting '.' would delete a further two lines. If you try to use it to repeat a search, bad things can happen (depending on what modifying-actions might be in you action-history).
