My first ~/.vimrc

I recently progressed from “the little vim-avoider who would if he only could” level to someone who actually edits his ~/.vimrc sometimes. So now I don’t want to forget the little I have learned and post it here:

" pointless reminder how i fixed vim issues on cygwin 
" existence of ~/.vimrc already triggers nocompatible mode
set nocompatible

" highlight all search pattern matches
set hlsearch

" i use light or even white background, vim to use readable colors
set bg=light

" use syntax highlighting
syntax on
