      Me too ;)

      Currently i write my masterthesis with vim + latex.
      I don`t use any plugin just pure vim. With a small Makefile i am able to
      build the document out of vim. Git over svn is used for a
      backup/revision control.

      I first tried kile, but i didn`t like the spellchecking. Than i took a
      closer look to emacs.
      But i'm not getting into this monster. It starts with the config-file.
      The lisp-language is killing me.
      And nearly every key-kombination don`t work on the first try because i
      release the meta-key to
      early or to late. So i stuck with vim. I'm not a power user but nearly
      every day i learn a knew nice small
      feature to do my work faster.

      Greetings ,

      Christoph
