Started using Vim the last 4 weeks. But one thing that really annoyed me was:
I always type :W instead of :w in vim. So this is my newest lifesaver.
:command W w :command Q q :command Bd bd :command Wq wq

I wouldn't recommend this. One of the biggest thing about Vim is muscle memory. By doing this, you'd have a hard time using someone else's instance of Vim if you were pairing.
Good idea to start off with; but not for the long run.

@jalcine I personally type this all the time too, not because I don't know the actual command, but as a typo.

I think this is happening because to you need to type
:, and to do this you use
Shift + ;.
I think you can remove the need to use Shift and only type
; to enter in command mode.
To accomplish this you can use this snippet:
nmap ; :

thanks for the advice - but sadly I use an QWERTZ (european) keyboard.
: are both requiring the SHIFT key - and its too much in my muscle memory that I would change it :/
