In your recent streams and courses, I noticed that you aren't using vim keybindings for VS Code anymore. Is that just for the course to make it easier to follow the cursor, or did you stop using it entirely? If so, what's the reason for that?

Thanks a lot Kent!

I had the same experience with Vim, used it for a month or two but quickly got fed up with all the configuration and lack of GUI perks. So I switched back to VSCode with VSCodeVim/Vim and I like it so far. It's a good compromise between the two editors. But I can definitely see where you're coming from, some things are a bit annoying with the vim extension.

@jgierer12 @kentcdodds I'm hardcore vim user for the last 2 years, I completely recognize the pain, but I would say this is only initial. After you polish your settings and save your dotfiles, you are pretty much golden(no need for so much changes), and you don't need to change much. I keep my dotfiles & (nvim) with ansible.
