Mousepad when I need to change a little in a file, vim if I need to change a bit more. Still voting vim as it has been something new for me.

vim != vi not even close
vim should be separate from the limited vi clones out there.

Well, it's true that vim != vi but I think that for this particular poll it's unnecessary to have vi and its childs separated, the same will go for Emacs/XEmacs

FYI Vi and Vim are two different editors and Vim (<= 7.x) is not fully Vi compatible, although it's mostly the things no one will want to be compatible with or have not needed in ~15-20 years hehe.
