You don't have to make Vim your primary editor although if there's any chance of having to muck around on other people's servers some basic vi skills would be welcome.

By the sound of it Vim might just not be your thing. I switched to Emacs 15 years ago after many years of advanced vi & Vim usage and never looked back since I never really liked modal editing.
