color scheme
This colors evolved over a long time. I tried to use very eye-friendly colors and put some optical emphasis on comments.

I looked for more subtle colors than those of the VI-distrib. I took a default-scheme and changed around, 'til I liked it. Not sure if the commands are enough for hardcore programmers that work with complex syntax, so please let me know where I can enhance it.
install details
Download and move to the ~/.vim/colors Folder. You can then choose the scheme from the menu (Edit>Color Scheme>simpleandfriendly) or type

If you want a color scheme as default you simply write the command in your ~/.vimrc file - in this case:
