Emacs has a vi mode, therefore vi is the best editor and Emacs is the best operating system ;-)

SciTE (Scintilla Text Editor) is a good one too, but is missing.

Emacs for everything, all the time. (With CapsLock bound to Ctrl of course).

Yes, Emacs and IBM Model M's.

For some reason, I can't stand Kate. I always use KEdit instead.
