KWrite and nano suit me fine. But I will get round to learning emacs and vi/vim someday...maybe.

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....

My knee-jerk reaction is for vim as well since that's pretty much all I use. But I am going to at least try emacs or some of the others and see if I enjoy any of them.

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)
Gedit users
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.

Hard to say Vim is editor of the year, since I don't think they improved much this year... but it's still my all time favorite

vi/vim all the ways.

I really like nvi, but vim has some very handy features of its own.
