" I just want a text editor so it's vi all the way."
That'll be nvi : https://sites.google.com/a/bostic.com/keithbostic/vi/
Once upon a time I remember coming across some forum post saying that the poster preferred vim because nvi hadn't had any updates for years. Clearly he didn't grok that that's why some of us prefer nvi intended, according to the man entry, as "bug-for-bug compatible replacements for the original Fourth Berkeley Software Distribution (4BSD) ex and vi programs."
