  3. Vim is optimzed for mouseless operation. Using the mouse slows us down, ergo Vim lets us work faster. No other text editor comes close to Vim for speed, efficiency, and availability. It's a serious tool for programmers and web developers: perfect for working with markup and scripting languages. Master Vim, and you will never need another text editor.

  4. C# is a lovely language in many ways, but it's not perfect. Mistakes made early in a language or platform's development are often impossible to fix afterwards, so this talk isn't a set of suggestions for the C# team. Instead it's a reflection on what we might do if we had a time machine. Which features which seemed like a good idea at the time have actually caused the development community hours of frustration? Which choices have caused confusion? What could we do differently next time?
