* loads fast
* Switches line number fast (use case: G++ reports an erronous line number)
* Find-and-replace is fast
* Syntax hilighting is fast
* Search is fast to type and run

Vim: The Fast Text Editor.

vi is:
- standard *nix editor
- the fastest (to edit with)
- relatively small and light (less of an issue these days, but still a plus)
- more ergonomic (once you remap ESC/CAPS as you do more with less movement
- full featured.

emacs is at least full featured (a massive understatement for an editor that can browse the web, play chess with you, etc.) and reasonably likely to be installed on any *nix system you have to work with.

as far as i'm concerned the other editors suck faeces through a straw, but obviously some people love them, so it's good that they're around. i was grateful for nano in my first few hours on gnu/linux, when vi seemed strange and evil and i just wanted something that worked a bit like notepad.

Vi/Vim all the way. even with graphical interface I prefer to edit file on terminal using vim. But still sometimes use gedit if my mood permits.
