vim with windows is user-friendly by itself. if you are looking for
more intuitive vim solution, check cream
(http://cream.sourceforge.net) and start learning vim from there.
plus, the skill you learn from vim/emacs is very portable and
OS-independent. for instance, I learned vim/emacs under windows
before. in my current position, i need to run batch under unix. my
skill in vim/emacs becomes immediately useful. Sweet!
there is one more reason to learn vim/emacs if you are as lazy as i
am. once you grasp it, you are all set with programming editor for the
rest of your life. ^_^.
