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.
