I like vi... it's one of those editors where, once you begin using it, it's hard to use something else. However, for creating plain-text documents and stuff, I prefer simpler editors like pico. But I still use vi for those too, depending on my mood ;-)
Jedit loads (the first time) as fast as gedit on my fedora core 2 with java 5.0.
It has many great plugins, for xml, for html, for coding, loads big files fast, looks good on java 5, you can use the same jar file to install it on windows.
It will not get many votes, but it is a great tool.
I'm amazed at the number of people using nano/pico, I used it for a long time, but some of my guru friends urged me to try emacs and I quite liked it. There seems to be an invasion of vi and vim supporters on this forum
