For me, it's not just the bear paws that are my hands, but also the fact
that I use a split ergonomic style keyboard at work, and have for at
least 8, 9 years. Thus, even regular 13-15" notebooks can be a
challenge for me.
But, if you really want to see me look drunk using vim or other keyboard
intensive tasks, watch me on one of those 1U rack/cluster consoles. I
just cannot get used to the weird arrangement of keys they use when they
cram them all onto those. Tiny Esc key, weird right Shift key...
