I'm surprised nobody mentioned "vimtutor," which comes with most vim
installations. I recommend it to people even if they're trying to learn
vanilla vi.

The biggest problem I have with vi is that eventually you start to
expect everything to act like it... for example, I'll be in a browser
window furiously pounding "j" expecting the screen to scroll down, or
I'll try to :wq out of an email. :-)
