I do like Kate's multiple-file thing, but I have an awful habit of getting rather carried away with the display options, and end up not being able to see half the characters. Not a fault with the editor, really, but a reason for me not to use it...

If only I could restrain myself from believing I could come up with a better syntax highlighting schema I might be able to get along with Kate.

That said, I do still use it when i've got multiple files that need to share bits of code and/or I need to keep referencing each other, like an html/css/php website or something.

I voted for vi/vim, though I don't like vim because its features can get complicated for me sometimes. I guess I still have to learn to use it.

Lordandmaker, that's a good point. But at least in this thread, one feels encouraged

No. The word "editor" now means Kate.

gEdit for GNOME
Vi for Console

vim.
I had to code a lot lately, mainly in php, and - sorry to say - even though there are special php editors out there, it's all crap. With vim, I have opened multiple files, found the spot where I have to change something, saved them, closed them and copied them to my upload directory before any of those other 'editors' would even have fired up... I tried two or three before I decided to read bout the basics in the vi manual.
I love my editor, it's customized the way I like it, my F1-12 keys do stuff that I need a lot, for example, F4 switches to the next frame if I have a split screen, F11 and F12 jump back and forth in the history of open files and so on... the syntax highlighting is set up with colours that don't make me dizzy when I look at them for a long time. I have a bash command line integrated, what else can you ask for? Everything works fast and reliable... I haven't experienced a single problem in these 6 month of excessive 'viing'

I have heard that 'ED is THE STANDARD EDITOR', though.
When I'm grown up, I'll try it.

Yes, things are done differently, but the fact that you can "easily" extend emacs to do things that you want is a huge win.
