vim gets intalled on a standard LFS install ;) (and it's not hard, to
swap your editor with another one if one so whishes)

It's not too complicated (imho) i've seen editors that are far worse
(i'm not saying joe is bad, i just prefer vim or something similar)
I would encourage everyone to at least know how vi works... it's fairly
rare you don't find a UNIX system w/o it ;)
But not just that, don't limit yourself to one editor, learn pico, etc
always keep your options open.
