I've been using vim mostly happily for a few years now. I'm a pretty advanced user, to the point of creating my own addons. I recently heard about the sublime text editor. What features of sublime might be particularly attractive to me? What might I miss from vim?

I use Sublime for Windows (and love Textmate on Mac) and Sublime is pretty good. It doesn't feel as extensible as Textmate, or at least not as intuitively but I have no real complaints about it. I am not a VIM user though so I can't tell you what you would miss from VIM, other than having to use the Mouse more. :) – James P. Wright Aug 1 '11 at 21:38

Mainly because these sites are getting more popular, and different people are gaining abilities that give them the power to change things, but they don't necessarily all agree on a specific way to run things. I.E. the more popular it gets, the more fragmented the standards get. – James P. Wright Aug 2 '11 at 15:34
