    Get used to vim. Use it for simple everyday things like notetaking and as a scratch pad. Then when you're accustomed to it, try to think of things that's help you use it better, like custom mappings and leader combinations. Read some docs on building your .vimrc and play with some sane customizations. There are countless plugins available that enhance the visuals, but I wouldn't recommend messing with them until you're much more familiar with vim.

    Apply vim bindings to everything. Remove the switches in your arrow keys, uninstall your mouse drivers. If possible block mouse registration in fimware.

    Wow some good info ya guys throwing at me! But got one question: How is this comfortable to use capslock when I swap it with esc?

    @orhun

    Yeah, I never do that. I don't like caps lock, but the main reason I don't like it is because of how easy it is to hit it accidentally. Giving it a real use just invites a different form of trouble, for me.

    @orhun making your caps lock key act as the escape key keeps you from having to reach up to the top of the keyboard every time you want to go back to the default buffer mode.

    If you need to type in all caps then there are a number of ways to do so using one or another method thats built into vim. I can't tell you what they are specifically because I never type in all caps but they're there 😅

    Or better to set up a leader combination that toggles an iabbrev rule that turns any entered lowercase character into its uppercase counterpart.

    interestingly enough there is a reddit thread containing 80 comments about the different alternatives ppl use to replace the function of their caps lock key once they loose it. On mac I have sticky keys set, on linux I can't remember what I did the last time I needed it, probably just held down the shift key as a lot of other ppl seem to do
