As a long-time Vim user, I just wanted to second all the thanks for new Vintage mode. :)
I hope the "experiment" won't be gone so soon ...

I've been having a go with Vintage and the thing I can say I'm missing the most at the moment is Text Object Selections. I keep doing dit and daw commands and they don't work.

It would be nice to have a cheatsheet of what is implemented already. I know we can view the code and bindings, but these aren't the easiest things for a human to quickly parse. :)

I'm trying to turn on Vintage mode, but I am not seeing any ignored_packages in the global settings.

I have the beta 2095

Vintage mode was only released with 2096—you'll need to run the new dev build.

Hey, just commenting to say that I *love* this feature. I switched from Sublime 1.0 to MacVim, but have now happily returned. Keep up the awesome work.

Sometimes when a plugin fails sublime displays the error but doesn't load the interface. For example I wasn't connected to the net after installing this plugin...


It displayed an error about not being able to connect to the remote package list and then didn't load sublime. I had to end the task in the task manager (windows 7 64 - ST Build 2101)

As a Vim user I find the Vintage mode VERY useful.
If you don't know if to keep or not the Vintage mode into the future just think about that a plug-in (ViEmu) to enable Vim mode for VisualStudio cost almost double the price of Sublimetext. There is also an add-on for Firefox to enable Vim like navigation.

Personally I think Vintage is the way to go. Will be hard to learn at the beginning but after passing the learning curve you will just don't get back. Vim mode is just so fast and powerful.

Being a console-exclusive, kind'o power-user Vi 7.3 user, I must say the Vintage mode catched my interest pretty fast. I guess if you keep on implementing the core features (navigation, selection), you may well convince many people to switch. Many vim users would be happy with the 20% Vim features they're used to. Some may never consider using Sublime for it's not FOSS, but most of them already run proprietary GPU drivers, so you never know ;)

Please, consider keeping it and working on it!
