1. WTF is going on here?


2. Hmm… this is cool. I want to see other interesting features this thing has.


3. OMG. <mind blown>


4. The worst thing about Vim…



5. I’m actually a wizard… and this is how I feel when someone sees me using Vim




Over the years, Vim got a reputation that it’s really difficult to learn it. I’ve heard many times from guys who are convinced it will take them months to reach proficiency. That’s simply wrong.

That’s why I wrote a book: Mastering Vim Quickly (from WTF to OMG in no time) which will teach you Vim the way I learned it – easily and quickly.
