"Awesome! Thank you for all of your hard work. It is especially nice that thebeginning starts the reader off gradually. After using vim for a couple of yearsI've forgotten how weird it seems at first, so I probably wouldn't explain it thatgood to someone. I will be sure to share your book to spread the vim propaganda.;-)"-- Joseph Sullivan
 Vim3What I am trying to say is if you have basic computer competency you shouldimmediately get Vim on your machine and improve your life.
