If I press [tab] in fundamental mode, then Emacs doesn't jump to the
next tab, but to the position of the next non-space char of the
previous line.  Sometimes this is really annoying.

You want to change the default value of indent-line-function.
Or you want to use some other mode (e.g. paragraph-indent-text-mode).

Actually I just want to enter some text without having to care about
different modes or redefining some internal functions. Thats why I am
using fundamental mode.  If I press [tab], then the cursor should move
to the next tab stop, which should be every 8th column, as usual. All
the Emacs clones I tried (mg, zile, jove) work this way. Even xemacs'
fundamental mode works better wrt tab stops (IMHO).

iNot to mention vi.

But maybe I am too blind to see. Is there a more basic mode for Emacs
than "fundamental"?
