      Since you (and me as well, though I am on Linux) are using system to
      change that this might not be possible: now CAPSLOCK generates the same
      keykode as ESC, so there is no way that vim could find a difference
      between them. What you can do is to remap ESC to CAPSLOCK in your
      system and that's probably the best solution. In all the other aps you
      will learn to use CAPSLOCK instead of ESC :) - you will have much more
      opportunities to learn the new layout.

      What about using <C-C> in insert mode, or even remapping <C-C> to <ESC>
      since there are some differences. Like triggering InsertLeave
      autocommand group (:help InsertLeave).

      Best,
      Marcin
