I wonder what the author didn't like about sublime text's vintage (vim) mode? I have not used vim, but i have been using vintage mode for about a month now and really love it. I grab my mouse occassionally, but mostly stay out of insert mode and navigate with movement keys. Plus I still have my sublime text environment that I've built up for the past 2 years.

I don't think I could've made it this far by diving in head first. Like it or not, I have to get work done, and when I couldn't get a motion to work right or didnt know the best way to do something, I could fall back on sublimes regular tools.




When I tried the vintage mode in Sublime Text, I already had some knowledge about vim and its behavior. I find that the vintage mode was restricting me, which exactly the opposite of what it's supposed to do.

That's exactly my point! Take it easy and don't go hardcore from the first day. You'll get annoyed right away and you'll go back to Sublime Text in 10 mins.
