I have never really cared for vim and typically prefer the original Bill 
Joy vi.

On Unix clone systems, I will typically download and compile/install the 
original stuff from source.


The original does have a couple shortcomings, depending on your needs 
and requirements.  When that is the case, I have had much better luck 
with nvi.


YMMV, depending on your needs.
