You're certainly not the only one (I don't mind it though).

I don't have any pre-20 emacs here to confirm, but my recollection is
that the old behavior was to actually reserve the final column on the
line for the line truncation/wrapping indicator -- i.e., there _was_ a
kind of fringe before, but only on the right side.

So to emulate the old-style behavior in the current emacs, you could set
the fringe-style to `right-only' (and if seeing the non-indicator fringe
annoys you, remove the background color attribute from the `fringe'
