vi is generally a symlink to vim these days.
Actually, it's a shell alias. And then, only if "vim" is installed,
which it isn't in some configurations. IIRC, desktop systems have him
by default, but server installations do not.
It is neither a symlink nor a shell alias - execpt maybe for platforms that
for some reason don't include vi.

vi is OSS and the OSS vi is fully POSIX compliant.

and BTW: vi does not read .vimrc but .exrc
