How about VIM? <www.vim.org>
It's now my preferred flavor of vi on both Unix (*BSD and Linux)
and on Windows. Their site includes Windows binaries. It supports color
syntax highlighting, multiple windows, multiple undo/redo, and works with
cscope as a few of it's optional enhancements.
Other than the multiple redo/undo, I'm unaware of any significant
differences between pure vi and vim.
Pure vi uses 'u' to undo and 'u' again to redo for a single level
undo. VIM uses 'u' to undo and '^r' to redo and you can undo and redo
