While I've used VIM in the past to modify text files in *nix, it's always been a forced affair, with me using it as little as possible to get things done. I've decided to dive into VIM, and try it out as a replacement for my standard code editor, TextMate. After all, I don't need much, just easy text editing, and syntax highlighting. So far, I dig it. Of course it helps that you can install VIM on practically anything (if isn't already there).
It seems like my MUD skills are finally useful.
