Learning to use Vim

Still, sometimes I fall back to Notepad++ (on Windows) or Gedit (on Linux) as I still have to get used to some of the features of Vim.
Vim has a build-in tutor that can be run by typing vimtutor on the command-line. On windows it can be started from the menu. It will get you started in 30 minutes.
There is also a nice online interactive vimtutor that can be found at www.openvim.com. Very nice. I can really recommend using it to learn the basics.
