It could be just me. Like you I started on vi, but to be honest I started it before it was vi when it was ex and it started you without the full screen and you started with the colon prompt. So it was sort of a super-duper ed. At the colon prompt you type vi to go into full screen mode. The next version was vi.

Then a few years later I started learning emacs and for me it was a real mind warp to always be in insert mode. But I can see what you're saying considering that on Windows you're always in insert mode in Word, Notepad, etc.
