Same with me. But it took me not ten years but only a few.
Currently I make gvim behave somewhat more like an average editor 
(Ctrl-S saves without leaving editing mode)
Syntax highlighting looks like in IDLE (though I messed up some files
in /usr/local/share/vim... etc to get rid of the bold font faces,since
colorschemes did not seem to override them..:( )
but I have not figured out yet how to integrate python similar to the 
C-compiler and make support.
I think it is even possible to limit vim to editing mode so that it
can be used like an average point-and-click editor.
