Vim exit from insert mode

In vi/vim pressing <ESC> you quit from insert mode to normal mode.

Instead <ESC> I am using <CTRL>[ because it is require less hand movement.


Another way to exit from insert mode is using <CTRL>C.

The difference between this two command is described in this question at Stackoverflow.
