Cherrypicking Favorite vi/Vim Features

Don says he'd like to talk about
a fairly long list of operations that would help a new user get started, or a long-time user who hasn't plumbed some of the shallower depths.

Things we came up with include executing shell commands without exiting the editor; quickly setting up minimal config on a new system (with usable color scheme); determining whether syntax coloring is installed and how to make it so; using the system paste buffer while in visual mode, and a number of others that should be of special interest to a new user.
