Multi-platform programmer's editor modelled to a degree on vi that was originally released for the Atari ST in the latter half of the 80s as STEVIE but around 1990 it was forked into a version called xvi and ported to a host of operating systems including AIX, BSD, HP-UX, Linux, MS-DOS, OS/2, QNX, Solaris, SunOS, Sunview, UNIX System V, Windows NT and Xenix/386. While functionally similar to vi it adds a number of more modern features such as multiple buffers and so on.

There was for a time also available a CLI mode port of xvi available for OS/2 but that appears lost to the vagaries of time.
