well, IDE's are wrong.

moreover autocommands helps you here to implement such a behaviour.

I do, I hate when an IDE try to complete everytime, everywhere, with no 
idea of what I need for autocompletion. Especially since vim 
autocompletion is purely syntaxic (without clever omnicompletion at 
least) which can be bothering with big sources.

I love needing C-n (even if I remapped it to <tab> with clever 
heuristics to guess if I want autocompletion or <tab> ;p). I don't like 
the <c-y> to validate your choice, so I've used a hack that is 
suggested in the help:

    " make <enter> work in popup
    inoremap <cr> <C-R>=pumvisible() ? "\<lt>C-Y>" : "\<lt>cr>"<cr>

sadly I can't do the same with <esc> to exit the completion, because of 
<esc> beeing <esc> (and me using vim into non 8-bit capable terminals).

I'm perfectly happy with that, because I like my editor doing what I 
want, not what I *may* want.
