I've been using gVim for a while and love the interface. I'm in love with my keyboard-fu skillz.

I was wondering if there was any application that would extend its functionality to all parts of Windows 7? At least some basic functionality.

I'd like to be able to control Explorer, a browser, etc.

I just want to stop using my bloody mouse. It's no fun.

Thanks.

I don't know a generic way of doing it across all of Windows, but I've collected lots of different applications that can be controlled with vi keyboard commands at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/826208/making-vim-ubiquitous

Have you tried TouchCursor? It's a free program that allows you to remap your keys so that instead of using the arroy keys, you use a combination of keys to get the arrow key functionality.

No need to use the mouse since you will not be leaving your hands in the "home keys".
