Quick and Easy Vi or Vim Questionview story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I'm at the very beginning of learning about text editor choices besides gedit. Do we have Vi or Vim in Fedora 17?

Yet typing in vim /etc/inittab got me nothing, while vi /etc/inittab gave me a return. So, which is it? Thanks... (HowTos)
