ed/ex/vi are the only editors which should be considered default on a
UNIX system. /bin/ed is for emergencies and /usr/bin/ex and /usr/bin/vi
are for non-emergencies.

More or less. However, it has a number of Emacs-ish key bindings (C-n,
C-p, C-a, C-e, and so forth) that make it tolerable for people like me.
