VI is the old BSD Unix text editor, commonly found on all 
flavors of Unix.  "Real" vi isn't available for free AFAIK.

If you really want vi go to and get vim
(VI iMproved) as it is basically compatible but far more 

Warning... vi and it's clones have a user interface that 
takes mucho getting used to, but once you've got it down
it is VERY powerful and efficient.
