Does it open files >2mb yet? My terminal vim does.

Yes it does. Currently, syntax-highlighting and soft-wrap are disabled for these files. We're continuing to work on optimizations and structural improvements to the editor that will allow it to support arbitrarily large files with the full feature set.

While I certainly see your point, Vim has quite the maturity advantage. I'm not sure if Atom will ever be as fast, being based on a web browser, but they're making progress and you can follow along if you care, or just wait a few years until it's solid / fast enough for you :)
