If this gets people into vim and helps them understand some of its craziness, that's awesome. However, like previous commenters have pointed out, most of these examples are actually wrong (not by a mile, but it pays to be precise in vim). Also, even though I love browsing through dotfiles and plugins on code repository sites, I tend to think that beginners to vim should learn slowly, gradually, and build up their knowledge over time, like anything else. Diving into plugins and custom mappings right away is going to be a lot more painful and less productive. And that's the antithesis of vim.

sorry, made some mistakes late at night. but "most" examples wrong? I think I only screwed up on the $ examples. if you see anything else wrong can you please point it out, so that I can fix em and not mislead people, thanks!
