vi is perfectly adequate. if you happen to need the anoying extra stuff 
vim provides you can install it.

no, no, no. its bad enough that linux weenies when writing code assume 
that /bin/sh is bash. before 10 doing so would be really bad. in 10 you 
may be able to get away with it. they even say you can  make root shell 
bash if you really want.
