    Default Vim always rocks

    I love vim editor and I do a ctrl+p to auto complete my thoughts in my dream Being a little bit geeky, but for some reason, I feel eclipse and all are like spoon feeding and Vim is much nicer. No offense, I don't mean to understate other editors or their users

    I love all the functions Eclipse has for auto-complete, auto-format, even attempts to auto-fix mistakes. When creating classes, the generate getters/setters is a huge time saver! It's also nice that i don't have to keep hitting that compile button because it auto-compiles, and boy is the compiler quick! I tried NetBeans for a little bit, but it uses so many system resources and compiling is seconds out of my life.

    I don't mind being spoon-fed on the simple things
