Uh... And how is that a success story??

Do a search here for "vim color". There are a few threads that address the issue.

If you want to make that effective all the time, put into your <.vimrc>
:syn on

somewhere for syntax highlighting to take effect. So
an alternative solution is to check your own <.vimrc>
and then system-wide <vimrc> and delete :syn on .
