This attachment :D Quite similar as Vim users in 2018, despite free great alternatives like VS Code :)

    “Free great alternative” does not cut it. For me to even consider switching to another editor, it must improve my workflow over Vim in *all aspects* or else it's not worth it. Up until now, no editor has achieved that.

    VS Code might be nice, but it's not as powerful or ubiquitous for me.

    Compare vim load times vs vs code load times. Also, good luck running vscode in an SSH session

    @fuck2code vim fast start-up is only true when you use local user with vim installed, on single server, that does not change often.

    In cloud-era, machines are short-living and NFS-based $HOME is painfully slow. Been there, and 99% of default ~/.vimrc sucks so badly I can't use them. 15s vim startup was a norm (few plugins only but still vim loads them before startup)

    Also, editing a file on server via SSH is one thing, refactoring variable in 2+ files - another. VIM was not designed to do the latter.

    Let's not start this war again. You use what works best for you and the world can suck it.
