Text Editor of the Year
Always an interesting poll.

vi/vim - I prefer plain vi, but vim is necessary on some dists to keep up with things like line numbers.

vi(elvis) & medit

I've liked and used gedit for a while, with no complaints.

vim for the win!

Despite its appetite for memory, I'm stuck on Kwrite still as a full-featured desktop editor (for scripting at least) so that gets my vote.

I've plans to look into a smaller lighter editor for the desktop, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Outside of X, I use mcedit (M. Commander), and for non-script editing at the desktop, mousepad will do, but I still prefer Kwrite.

vim is always nice

I currently use gedit for writing plain text stuff and editing C code, but for little shell scripts and whatnot, it's easier to pull up vim in the terminal I'm already using to test the scripts. :p I'm no master at it, though (I only know i/I, d(x)w/d, w, and q!).

What about Bluefish?

Bluefish is in the IDE/Web Development Editor of the Year poll.

Vim/vi/bvi/vifm/cgdb. Anything vi like I like.
What about gvim, then? ;)

(not that I use it...just wondering)

jEdit is the most versatile editor I have ever used (non-commercial). Although Mousepad is the best light weight editor.

Definitely a tie between joe and kwrite.
