In my case, I learned enough Vim to be able to do quick editing on remote servers, it used to be that you could always find a Vi/Vim installed on a new Linux machine. Those days you can always find Nano installed on a new Linux machine so I mostly use Nano for quick editing. For serious dev work I use Visual Studio Code with the Remote Dev extension.
