something better, primarily for vim, but necessarily consistent for
_all_ applications, so that muscle memory can be relied upon, whatever
you're doing. So I just changed the CapsLock key to Esc:
Added to ~/.Xmodmap:
keycode 0x42 = Escape
clear Lock # Disable Caps-Lock
I'm still using the cursor keys for motion, despite decades as a
programmer, and have been happy with that Esc on laptops and desktops
for years now.
Habit is habit, and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but
coaxed down-stairs a step at a time.
