Why isn't KEdit on this list? That's mainly what I use because of it's simplicity and speed. For a simple text editor, I don't need a lot of functionality.

Editors....

vim and gvim .. because emacs is like marriage.. it seems like a great idea at first but in the long run its just a way of slowly torturing yourself to death.

Someone slap the guy who voted for kwrite :P

You should give Bluefish a shot - very very good IMHO.

Since switching to Gnome after a couple of years using KDE i find the only program that i have to have from KDE is the brilliant Kate. As a hobbyist programmer who doesn't want all the stuff in Kdevelop (would use Anjuta if i needed to), i find Kate to be the best text editor for writing code.
