vim is a quirky, spartan, powerful text editor derived from the standard UNIX tool vi. If you’ve decided to learn to use it, or want to refresh your memory as to how it works, here are a couple of suggestions.

P.S.: I write all my PowerShell scripts in the Windows version of vim. More on this later.
This lovely website provides you with hours of entertainment playing a cool game while you learn and internalize the basics of working in vim. As you master the skills needed to defeat the game you’re also becoming adept at handling this most interesting of text editors.
I plan to speak more of vim in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. Be seeing you.
