I habitually type 'vim' and remember immediately if it isn't installed
yet.  I developed this habit because the Solaris machine at school has
"Version SVR4.0, Solaris 2.5.0" as 'vi' and vim is installed as 'vim'.
Hmm, interesting, if I type 'vi' on my debian box I actually get vim
(I never tried before).
