vi, vim, gvim. Really the first one is sometimes uncomfortable... So - (g)ViM 7.0 alpha not forever, but only until release.

Kate by a mile! I don't know of another GUI editor that comes even close; on any platform.

East or West.. Emacs is the best.. I simply can't live without it.
It's the text editor of the century. Nothing cannn replace things like gcc and so is emacs..

I've been using leafpad for my gui editor because it's simple and uncluttered.

I use vi for short simple tasks, edits and scripts. However, for larger tasks, I prefer a GUI text editor. Given that I have only worked with OS for about a year and in particular Red Hat distributions, I have gotten use to Kedit as a GUI based text editor.

text editor

nano on all my other consoles except pico on redhat 9 (yuck) Still want a version of nano that will work on my Solaris 10 boxes. Working in vi just bites.

I had to pick vim/vi. I love the color highlighted syntax for certain languages. I have to admit, though, that emacs is pretty solid and pico/nano is very simple to use, but once you learn vim it is worth it.

other: kwrite (for the syntaxis recognition and IMO how simple is to use)

im not a newbie but nano

first of all-pico and nano are the same things
when i was a newbie no one ever introduced me to vi(m), i always used nano
when i try to use it now-it just seems less productive
