After years of using Vim, I recently moved to its graphical version – gvim. It turned out that things that I didn’t like about gvim are trivial to fix.
set guifont=Console set guioptions-=m " No menu set guioptions-=T " No toolbar set guioptions+=c " Use console dialogs where possible
You’d probably want to read “:help guioptions” for more.
Now there is a greater variety of colorschemes to choose from, and, finally, I can have italic font for comments in the code – nothing beats that!
