I've done vimtutor several times when I get bored. I love the idea of Vim. It's keyboard shortcuts have a lot of relevancy to me and I just feel like there's a lot available to me, that wasn't available in my current editor (Atom). Plus I like the idea of the extensibility that vim offers. As of now I can't get away from Atom just because I can't just start using Vim at work and have a slow curve to get back to speed.
To test my speed I wrote the basic Hello, World program in C. In Atom I was able to accomplish this in under 30 seconds. However in Vim, it took me over 2 minutes. Are there any good resources out there to get over that initial hump?
So I found the reason I was so much slower on Vim was not because of Vim itself, but the version I have installed on my Mac was bugged and wouldn't let me do things like backspace in INSERT mode. Having only used Vim on my Mac I always thought this was correct. So I would be slowed down by typos because I would have to go to NORMAL mode and then use X on any misplaced characters. I retried this time test on my Linux machine, and I was actually (slightly)faster on Vim. This made the "learning curve" I was having seem non-existent.
