And I'm still learning how to use it.
1998–
My editor of choice.
1998–
Vim is so powerful and extensible I am continually amazed at what I find and what I can do with it.
1998–
1999–2009
Switched from vi to vim at my new job that had mapped /bin/vi to /bin/vim on a Redhat 5.2 box and never looked back. Still use it when I'm ssh'd in for a quick file review but moved to Emacs in 2009 for the majority of my editing.

The One True Editor (unless you are an emacs heathen -- not that there's anything wrong with that...) Could write reams of text about why it's so awesome but this isn't a review site (you may be forgiven for thinking as much if you see my other entries).

My favourite editor. No matter what else I try, I keep coming back to VIM.

Came back to vim... still learning.

My only editor and still loving it

Modal editing is where it's at!
2003–
My #1 editor for programming and sysadmin.

Finally figured out that there was a difference between this and vi around 2004 or 5.

Started playing with VIM in 2004 when I was trying to learn Linux, but didn't really get into it until 2009-2010.

My one (other... hi honey!) true love

I'm not switching to emacs.

I've used GVim off and on, but don't like how it does indentation (no, my preferred indentation isn't PEP8 compliant)

Use for quick editing while ssh-ing into dev boxes

Started using it because there wasn't any other reasonable option on the Solaris machines. Only really started to understand it in 2010.
2007–
I took it on Linux class too. This editor made me realize why the console can get actually comfortable once you get used to it. To save a file with a Mexican keyboard, you hit Escape Shift+Period W Enter Insert; do this countless times because you have the reflex of saving every 10 seconds, and it comes off by pure and simple muscle memory.

I love it! Period!

Started using it because I wanted a better environment for coding. It's really good, but I still have much to learn.

I <3 my vim.

Still getting comfortable with this as the learning curve is pretty steep. I've got problems with TextMate that I think vim might be able to address so I'm willing to give it a shot.
