what I really like about vi/vim is that how you can navigate thru your text. But I’m not so “crazy” to write Java applications in vim, so I still use Intellij IDEA with IdeaVim plugin
Ah… you’re an Emacs fan, Mikhail, aren’t you?
Yes I am. I know that Emacs vs. Vim is a never-ending flame war, so will not advertise it here.

P.S. vim is good, but the creatures behind it are best :P
What happened? Oh… At some moment I realized that moving with h,j,k,l plus all w, b, c, f, t, i, I, o, O, a, A is quite nice and handy. I’m discovering that I don’t really like to move hands out from the keyboard whether it mouse or arrow keys while I’m coding.
TextMate is great and I would totally stick with it if it supported vim’s key bindings. But I guess it would require it to be vim. :)
Incidentally I’ve stumbled upon this post. Not a real comparison, just enumeration of editors:
