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

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

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.

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. I'm no master at it, though (I only know i/I, d(x)w/d, w, and q!).

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

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