I voted for vi (vim et al) because it is always there. I personaly like an editor called Epsilon by Lugaru (www.lugaru.com) because it is available for Linux and Window$ (which I still have to use for some of my clients). It is an emacs type of editor and I have used it since the early '80s (there was a version for CPM for 8080 and Z80's). I use emacs and xemacs but have always found it a little intimidating.
I think that "favorite" editor has a lot to do with how one was "potty trained".
