Have you ever been annoyed with that fact that :new opens a buffer above the current? If yes, then try :below new.

You can also have all splits open below the current window by setting the splitbelow option (for example, place the following in your vimrc):

set splitbelow

The process is similar if you want vertically-split windows to open to the right. Use :below vnew to create a new vertical buffer on the right, or put the following in vimrc:

set splitright
