Another reason I like to use Vim is because it’s much more healthy than Emacs (using the default-keymappings). Healthy? Many commands are easily typed with a single keystroke – the virtue of a modal editor, instead of long command-chains with lots of modifier keys. Even if you have a natural keyboard, pressing Ctrl, Alt etc is certainly not natural at all.
Just remember: Vim’s basics are really very simple, but in combination the simple commands become very powerful.
Nota: Vim = Vim IMproved
