I finally did the move and switched to Vim as my main editor during the last days. I already have used Vim for editing in the terminal especially on a server.
Till now I have used the Janus Vim Distribution but I decided that if I want to use Vim full time I will have to go the hard way and I'll have to build my own configuration from scratch. So I removed my current configuration and started with an empty
.vimrc file and actually used Vim to build the new configuration.
It's not completely finished yet but it's pretty usable. If you want to give it a try you can find it on GitHub.
Vim is still pretty hard for me to use but I hope that I will get to full speed soon. My only fear is that I won't be able to use a regular editor anymore...
First backup and remove your current Vim installation and then execute the following commands in your terminal:
> git clone http://github.com/code2k/dot_vim.git .vim > cd .vim > ./bootstrap.sh
