files, but instead copy one line at a time that you understand and slowly build
up a huge file. This way you have a setup that fits you best.

-## Why You Should Use "set nocompatible"
-There is a lot of controversy over the use of `set nocompatible` in the Vim
-world. This command makes Vim use the new features that they added, extending
-Vi, thus not being compatible with it. However, people say this redundant
-because if Vim sees a `.vimrc` file in the home directory then it automatically
-sets no compatibility. But however, if you load a `.vimrc` using `vim -u
-.new_vimrc` or `:so .new_vimrc` then it will load Vim being compatible with Vi,
-if it does not contain `set nocompatible`. It is also a case of better safe
-than sorry, adding one line of 16 characters to your `.vimrc` file won't hurt.
