So I just installed Ubuntu and i wanted to see if it already has VIM installed, so I ran vim and nothing happened. Then accidentally ran vi and was shocked when I saw the vim welcome screen in front of me. However, once I started using it, I figured that it was actually "vi" not "vim", due to arrow keys not being usable as expected in a regular text editor.
So I installed the actual VIM and I use it now and it's cool and all. No problem was really encountered here. However, I really wonder why "vi" still says "vim" at the welcome screen when it starts out. That was really misleading. If it had said "vi" instead of "vim" in the beginning, I wouldn't have to waste a precious 30 second to figure out that it wasn't really vim. Why is that?
