As a vi user, I would add this tip:

Because vi is modal (command mode, insert mode etc), the first habit you must
learn is this:
	_ always_ hit Escape when you pause when inserting text
In this way you are always in command mode when idle, and your confusion will
be greatly lessened.

Learn that one first, then a few basic commands, then try to add a command
letter a day to your repertoire.
