If you’ve ever opened Vim, a Linux text editor, you might have wondered: “What is this and how do I get out of here?!” I know I have. I find nano much easier to use.
But here’s the thing: I’ve had some conversations on Twitter about this and I think I’m missing out on something. It sounds like Vim is… magical.

It seems that everybody agrees that Vim is a very powerful editor . And I think that you will agree too if I say that, by default, Vim is totally unusable.
