It feels much more lightweight than emacs. Even if you are a die-hard emacs fan, you should consider/look into vim purely for the possibility of using spacemacs or evil mode down the road.

that makes no sense seeing as basically everything has some sort of vim emulation mode if all you want are the hotkey bindings. add on top of that the effort of add-ons for snippets and the like (particularly in vim, where add-ons are pretty crash-prone), to say nothing of the effort to have a project open in an IDE and vim at the same time and it's silly.

really the main advantage of learning vim (aside from quickly being able to edit files in the terminal) is that vim bindings afford a de-facto standard across all IDEs with a vim plugin for basic text editing.

vim but only when i'm doing small stuff like writing a script or editing a config file. for actual projects i use VSCode or VS

pre-good editors I probably would've used emacs, since it's basically an all-in-one environment and extending it via macros being was one of the building blocks. vim add-ons are often clunky and slow it down/don't work.

any enterprise shit is a nightmare without excellent autocomplete, which vim can have (maybe, depending on your language) but requires flaky to very flaky plugins. Emacs is better here I assume, but it's really a full environment unto itself. You lose stuff like intellisense/javadocs giving you tooltips as you use a function. I don't want to have to remember what namespace every fucking library is in

Refactoring is a HUGE one. I don't mean straight find and replace, but stuff like mass applying naming rules across your project for anything you may have typed wrong. This matters when your work enforces style suggestions as warnings

Setting up a good vimrc is a huge pain in the ass. And then you have to do it all again when you switch languages. I LOL at webdev tools who spend so much time fidgeting with vim because they (subconsciously--consciously they'll justify it with some dumb reason) want open source edgy cred. Your startup doesn't matter, everyone who isn't in a nonprofit except people doing research/toolchain development type stuff, ie not you, is a corp drone.

GDB (and I assume clang equivalent) is very competent but debuggers are just easier to use graphically. The gui really helps for organizing information here

Etc

I think a big part of vims resurgence is web 3.0 types who literally only ever write JavaScript. They're used to the SHIT debugging you get with node, don't have to set vim up for more than one language, and use the same set of functions over and over again
