If you already have vim then you should be able to starting using either "evim" or "vim -y" from the terminal. It's not even a different program, just vim with some funny options set at startup.

If you don't have vim then this appears to where they keep the OSX version.
vim's included with osx, but evim doesn't seem to be present  OUTSIDER

i think vim -y works but i am still confused  OUTSIDER

Well basically evim is just vim in easy mode and the -y option has the same effect. So if you start  "vim -y" from the terminal it should open a version of vim with a GUI and less incomprehensible commands.

I've been mostly using vim for the past 5 years or so.

I used Eclipse for most Java/Android stuff (haven't used Android Studio yet)
I used Visual Studio only when I had class assignments that required it.
On some occasions that call for it, I program in a hex editor, directly writing machine code or bytecode.
I use gedit sometimes as just a clipboard buffer of sorts, never for actually opening files with.
I use nano exclusively as a fallback when vim isn't installed yet.

can you give me a dumbed down explanation of why vim is so popular and has such a legacy?
More than anything, it's because everything has keyboard shortcuts that take very few keypresses. For example, you can delete everything from the cursor to the next comma by just typing "dt,"
Just for moving the cursor around, while you can stick to arrow keys (or hjkl), you can also move it a specific number of lines at once, skip words, jump to a matching brace, jump to a specific line number, etc. There's a lot more for deleting, pasting, and tweaking text.

A caveat to that system is the learning curve. While it's easy enough to learn the minimum number of commands to use it, learning to use it well is another matter; that's part of its legacy.
To people who program for a living, it's usually worth it. Editing and reading things faster is about more than just saving time: there's a lot of value in avoiding repetitious tasks and not breaking your concentration or losing your train of thought.

It's popular enough that a lot of other editors (and other programs completely unrelated to text editing) have an option to imitate vim shortcuts.
