I try to stay out of the VI/Emacs war, but I do use VI on all my 
devices.  I had a portable DOS, OS/2, Win16 console, Win32Console, Linux 
set of floppies I could easily pop in to have VI on any machine I needed 
to work on/with.

It was less of affinity for the specific editor as it was just a need 
for some consistency so I could focus attention on other things.
