A coworker asked me the other day. Why Vim, what do you like so much about it? I would dare say everyone who encounters Vim has a similar story. Many years ago, while on a linux machine I first encounted Vim. It was a simple way to edit text on the server. It didn’t make sense, but it worked. That was the extent of engagement with Vim for about 10 years, just being able to do simple editing of text.
