As a programmer working mainly on AIX, I use vi almost all the time. Some of my colleagues use ultraEdit on windows though, but they have to FTP their stuff, whereas vi runs on the server side.

AIX is an operating system (a unix one from IBM).
Windows is a parody of an operating system (a very strange thing from Microsoft having some of the functionalities of an operating system).
UltraEdit is a text editor with a GUI.
vi is a text editor running on the console with no GUI.
FTP is a File Transfer Protocol.

I've worked on Linux, Solaris, HP-UX and always used vi/vim. You'd be surprised how easy it is these days, especially as a lot of the time it's from a PC wkstn onto a server, so I get to use the mouse for copy/paste.
