There are other great resources for vim:
vimtutor - a basic tutorial that ships with vim. This gets you comfortable with the basics of moving around and changing text.
Your problem with vim is that you don't grok vi
Learn vimscript the hard way
After that the book already mentioned: Practical Vim
Than you for the comment! I do mention vimtutor in the article and thank you for sharing the other resources. You don't grok vi is really good and I'm looking forward to reading learn vimscript the hard way (it's on my kindle :D). I already have a plugin in mind I'd love to write.
