vi / vim has been my editor of the year, the decade, and the quarter century. I wonder if, in another 25 years, there will still be a vi-like editor in common use. Would Joy have guessed that vi would still be around (I started to say viable) after close to 35 years?
Right now I use vim because that's what is installed on my boxes, but I don't use much that is peculiar to vim.
After using emacs, no way I can stand using another editor... (excepting vi when logging as root for VERY tiny stuff). Everything can be done extremely fast, practically detects any encoding of any language, and if you can think it, you can automate it!
I keep pressing Ctrl-P or Ctrl-N even in my browser><.
