I have been using Vim since January and it works great for me.  I
particularly enjoy being able to customize keyboard mappings, virtually no
limits on the number of mappings.  My _vimrc file follows.  The Stata
relevant lines are:

  autocmd FileType stata set tabstop=4 shiftwidth=4 expandtab smartindent
  map <F8> :!start "c:/program files/stata8/wstata.exe" do "%:p"

Note the F8 mapping allows you to run do files.
