You're absolutely right. Who needs Cream? Cream is for user stick to old pardigm and who don't understand the textual interface of vim. People often complain, that vim is to complicated to learn and to remember all of its commands. Hey, it is _NOT_ necessary to learn _ALL_ commands, you only need to learn the basics of editing (20 minutes, vimtutor) and after that you should keep in mind not to repeat yourself (DRY) while editing. If you feel so, you can look up<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:help for a special solution. I recommend to see Bram Moolenaar google-video about "7 Habits For Effective Text Editing" on <a href="http://video.google.de/videoplay?docid=2538831956647446078" title="google.de">http://video.google.de/videoplay?docid=2538831956<nobr>6<wbr></nobr> 47446078</a google.de>
