I'd actually have to go with Midnight Commander's built-in editor. All I ever use - seems more intuitive to me than the other console editors, and definitely more convenient since I use MC as my only file manager.

Emacs rules! Ok, I voted for emacs, however, KATE is also very good if you are running X. I like the built in console as well.

pico for editing files like lilo, fstab, and the like; Kate for editing PHP and HTML. If I had to choose one, I'd go with Kate. -- J.W.

I have to agree with smith847be, I use the MC built-in editor as well (even from X term).

I'll also use jove.

vim is good, especially gvim (Since it has mouse support and looks better)

Gedit is nice for fast editing of webpage files. And it just looks the part With Gnome.
