A .vimrc config file everyone should use

Ever had that issue when you login to a Linux terminal, editing a file and the texts are just blue and you can’t read? I’ve had way too many cause default vim/vi config is just bad. I created a good .vimrc config file. Simply create a file with .vimrc name in home directory a paste following config. Open a new SSH/terminal and you’re gonna love the color schemes, colorline, line numbering, auto tab and indentation. I use it in my every server and every virtual machines.
