Re: Searching, etc.
1. g* does nothing. In Vim, it searches for the word under the cursor, but does not bracket the word with \< and \>. Very useful for partial matches.
2. Is there a way to turn off incremental searching? I'm used to being able to edit the search string after I type /.
3. How about Ctrl+^ to switch to the alternate window?
4. Ctrl+P doesn't complete as much as it does in Vim; e.g., completing a variable name when I'm inside the double quotes of a string. On the other hand, it gives much smarter Intellisense, which is a big plus!
Muscle memory is at the heart of all these questions, and it's why we're all trying to use vi in VS: http://www.georgevreilly.com/blog/20YearsOfVi.aspx
