Vim is *not* a development environment.
Emacs with ECB and semantic, for Java & C[++] comes quite close though.
Auto-completion and "quick apidoc" together with refactoring boost
development speed considerably, and these are de facto standards of
any modern IDE. It's a fact, and although some 4-5 years ago comparing
:w or CxCs with mouse clicks was funny, now it's simply ridiculous.
Take a look around, everything is moving towards that direction, from
big (all Java IDEs, VS, SlickEdit) to small (kdevelop, anjuta, emacs +
xrefactory,ecb etc.).
