Vi stands for Visual, and it is an early attempt to develop a visual text editor. Vim, on the other hand, stands for Vi IMproved. Vim is an implementation of the Vi standard with many additions. Vi and Vim are powerful text editors you can use to edit files on a Linux system. Vi has been around for a long time, while Vim was created more recently. Both editors are robust and have many features you can customize. Some people prefer Vim because it often provides more features than Vi, while others prefer vi because it is a more traditional text editor. However, both editors are helpful and can be used to edit files on a Linux system.
