      The CTRL-[ might be a not so favored alternative
      once one gets accustomed to <ESC>.

      BTW.
      If the "gVim" initiates in insert mode, it might be something changed,
      for example the "cream" as I've once encountered,
      which indeed changes the Vim behavior a lot.
      Check http://cream.sourceforge.net/
