How many of you guys use vim?
How many hate it? Why?
How many haven't tried it yet?

I've been using it for a month and it feels great. Everything is fast and customisation is great and fairly easy (just vim ~/.vimrc). With a little bit of searching abilities, you can do pretty much anything you want by configuring the vimrc. And besides the initial learning courve of having no UI, it feels much more intuitive to just use the keyboard.

I used it by a necessity to edit stuff from the wls, but fuck, now I'm fucking addicted to it. Every new command I learn is a fucking drug for my hands.

I totally recommend it and personally feel a tad sad when vim gets hate. I understand jokes though. I also struggled at first to use "i" to start typing, "hjkl" to move around, and got stuck with the good ol' ":q". But it's worth it.

    The good old :q 😂 I should continue using it, I'm using atom currently, and sometimes it's painful just to modify simple things...

    Currently learning it and loving it more and more! Will remain a nano user for quick edits though :)

    I can't stand vim, I'm just more into graphical editors like Atom/Sublime.
    If I'm on the CLI I use nano.

    @makmm occasionally vscode but that's really rarely. Mostly when I code in classes so people don't think I'm a freak or "hackerman". I study history, so when my classmates see no gui they are like "wow, what are you hackin'?" or just joke about me with sarcasm.

    @makmm omg that's great! I suggest you to keep learning new comands regularly, they really expand the experience 😊
