jEdit is the most versatile editor I have ever used (non-commercial). Although Mousepad is the best light weight editor.
I concur. JEdit is indeed quite nice. I don't use it though because of lack of support for anti-alias fonts (at least last I checked). I'm old unix greybeard and typically vote for vi or emacs but this year I'm going to be a little more open minded and ponder this a bit more before voting....
vi is good but does not save command history,highlight search,highlight current line,autocomplete filenames
vim is for all.(backward compatibility & added friendly features)
If you ever had to edit a huge file.Then you will love vim.It also has multiple tabs & lot of scripting features making editing fun NOT tedious.
