Now I have go through the arduous process of remastering the Live DVD to get one with emacs installed (and it appears the primary tool for this was removed because the authors are afraid of "fake" Live DVDs being produced).

This utility shall be provided on systems that both support the User Portability Utilities option and define the POSIX2_CHAR_TERM symbol. On other systems it is optional.

Now, this is the moment when I think my memory has stopped working correctly. If what you wrote is true and I believe it is, then I'm totally wrong and vi is installed in Mint.
But why do I remember that I had to install it then? And I'm talking about vi, not vim.
OK, if vi is pre installed in the main edition of Mint too, then I apologize guys - I was wrong.
