Alternate ways to quit out of Vim

In an effort to increase my Vim knowledge, I stumbled across a blog post by rocketeer alumnus Josh Branchaud. His post covers a few ways to quit out of vim and it is worth the read.

In there I found these two useful ways for quitting out of Vim from Normal mode, as opposed to Command mode.

ZZ in normal mode is equivalent to :x   in command mode.
ZQ in normal mode is equivalent to :q! in command mode
