I have to agree with that.
I have used the standard vi for quite some time but always got into 
problems by pressing cursor keys which resulted in being dropped out of 
edit mode and a letter changing to uppercase for weird reasons.

Ever since discovering vim, I have no more problems (well, except for 
occasionally pressing q instead of :q and ending up in macro mode or 
something). So now it's one of the first things I install on a new 
system.

IMO vim is a lot more intuitive for users who are not old-hat Linux/Unix.
