Discussion on: How (and why) I use Vim

I remember the struggle on how to quit vim. First time I encountered it, was in a class where we had to work on a Raspberry Pi connected via ssh and the only Editor we had was Vim.

It was a really terrible experience. After probably 1 year I thought, maybe I should give it a second try.

Nearly 1 year passed and I am now using Vim as my main editor. It will take a bit of time to get used to but it's worth it in the end. Everyone should at least try Vim for a few days, but I don't think it will work out for everyone. However, it gives text editing a whole new feel.

Nowadays, I find myself typing ":wq" into non-vim programs 😂👌
