I don't use vi myself....  but I think the point here is that anyone using 
Linux should know *some*  vi commands.     I use it everytime I get done with 
a fresh install and have nothing else to use....   while I make those one or 
two line changes to config files to set up a network or such.

The point here is that vi is almost universal in being available on *any* 
linux system including  Tom's Root-boot floppy.  But I don't suppose you've 
ever used that either.  :-)

And I too am an old fart like you imply you are.
