Without any plugins, I am able to autocomplete :vsp filena<tab>

I wonder why I don't get autocompletion of filenames with :o. I have tried this in different installations, terminals and OS.

:o[pen] comes from Vi. It's intended to support so called "open mode" which is no-op in Vim. You should use :e[dit] instead.
