Just remember that you are using *vim* and not *vi* - which is a huge(!)
difference. The core features are the same, but vim is so much more
versatile than vi. And can be turned into an IDE (of some sorts) for
programming.

<http://vim.org/> has *lots* of informations, tipps, tricks, code
snippets and other stuff.
