vim, gvim for be more specific. Once you learn the commands, is incredible faster. Use it for coding in C and Perl.

Emacs is not a text Editor, it's a religion Got fed up of searching new programming tool every time you're in need of another prograqmming/markup language, platform etc? USE EMACS! You'll never find your last still undiscovered feature in it!

Vim guys out there! You'll never outbeat us! But keep tryin' ! Competition is always for good... as long as competition itself is good

vi/vim all the way! Nothing has come close to replacing it for me.

Cool Can't Beat Preview Mode on Emacs

It's very hard to beat emacs with auctex, reftex and most importantly PREVIEW MODE.

Full (almost real time) previews of your equations, headings, diagrams and other scripts inside your emacs window!

Nothing comes close.

Check out http://preview-latex.sourceforge.net/ for some screen shots.

Actually looking back at my email, I said I'd "keep it in mind for next year". It's been added.

If you would have read this sites news you would not have been ignorant of the fact Jeremy is kinda busy at the moment. Besides that, you are not in the position to call anyone here a liar for a reason *that* trivial. A friendly reminder would have been enough.

Please edit your post to reflect the kind of respect you have for people that provide LQ, without cost and for your benefit as well.

If you have problems with this sites' management or moderation, next time please use email.

Yeah but if they could only include a good text editor with Emacs, then it would rock. If the Emacs guys would put all their effort into making a good text editor instead of figuring out how to make Emacs cook you an Egg McMuffin and reprogram your TV remote, they'd put together a hell of an editor. ; - ]

---EDIT---

VIM rules!

This is a bit like Chalk and Cheese, GUI windows based editors have a different role to play to command line editors.

However for all-round power it has to be Kate. Just set up two entries on your menu, one to run Kate as user, one as root, and open all the files you have to edit from time to time. Every time you run Kate there they are, waiting for you!
