Discussion on: "Damn! Now I have to use Vim"

An former coworker of mine used to use the vim keyboard mapping in IntelliJ - I used to pair with him, but I would wind up accidentally locking myself out of edit mode when he would go to the restroom and I tried to use IntelliJ shortcuts when I forgot I was in vim mode. What a pain 😆

I also use a docker container called ubuntu-upstart in my local dev environment which I frequently SSH into. That container doesn't ship with vim, but it ships with vim.tiny which is good enough for doing 99% of things: i and :wq
