Bram Molenaar himself has said that he had to learn "vi" to be able to do UNIX computer classes. There wasn't an alternative, so he had to learn it.

Of course, then he got hooked, and the rest is history...

Nowadays, I think this is not true anymore. Ubuntu and Debian even ship with this abomination called "nano" as a default editor.
