You are falling into the very common trap of believing that everyone must
be exactly like yourself.  You are wrong.  I don't claim that vim is the
most popular Windows editor (I have to believe that Visual Studio is), but
the vim community in Windows is strong, active, and well-populated.

I suspect this is especially true in the Python world.  Many Python
devotees spend time in multiple operating systems, where vim and emacs
proficiency is essential.
