Excerpts from Fons Adriaensen's message of 2011-08-16 20:45:47 +0200:
vim comes up with a help screen if you run it just call 'vim'. If you
follow the instructions you get to the manual where one of the first
instructions tell the user how to quit.

It seems some people stumble upon it by accident, more or less. Just met
one on saturday. It went something like this: "what do you study?"
"computing science" "Linux user?" "Yep" *imagine funky face* "Tried to
use vi or something once for some fluid dynamics thing, we used [bla]
Just a single case and no idea how exactly he stumbled upon it, but it
was obvious that he a) associated Linux with vi(m) and b) was put off
fast by vi(m). I doubt a nicer introduction could have helped in this
case though, simply because vi(m) is a really complex beast and you
either invest time to learn what you need to learn about it or you can't
use it. There's no way around investing time with this thing.
