Yeah, that’s not what I meant.

It’s easier to achieve the same thing, is what might be more appropriate. You have tools now that do the same thing as vim, minus the learning curve. So, for them, why would they chose to learn vim?

You see, I’m arguing both sides here.
For a specific minority, yes, it’s useful — the kind that don’t get access to the modern tools; the handicap I talked about earlier. Vim is the best tool for the job here.

I like it too, that’s why this post.

For others, it’s not really that useful. To be able to do the same things they are doing now ( maybe a bit faster) — by putting in all that effort.
