True vim is not. But vi should be.  I'm not aware of any Linux distro
which does not install it.  Do you know of a distro that does not?  Even
Ubuntu with it's nano default editor installs vi, if I'm not mistaken.
Some distros use a stripped-down version of vim (perhaps vim-tiny)
instead of vi, but the command "vi" is always going to be there.  Even
on my embedded OpenWRT devices!
