Why I use vim

Vim is very powerful text editor, you can do all kinds of things with it.

You can jump immediately to a line, search by pressing / and anything you want to do - with a few keystrokes.

Vim is everywhere: on your local device (Linux), on embedded systems, on servers. It's really everywhere and it's really powerful.

In fact, if you use Linux then vi/vim is installed by default. Even on Mac OS X the vim editor is available in the terminal (I use this for work).

If you want to learn vim I recommend this tutorial besides the basic vimtutor.
