Currently I use Kate but I find that vim has a lot of useful little tricks that I like at the press of a key (like o to open a new line). But I still can't get past the switch-modes-to-correct-typo thing. And it would probably be worthwhile to remap the Caps Lock key to ESC.

vim gets my vote here. I don't think i've ever used real vi so I'm not sure of the differences.

My preference is vim in terminals and gvim for gui.

I voted Emacs, but I actually prefer jed. However, I mainly like jed because of its semblance to Emacs (keyboard shortcuts, etc.).

I am in the process of learning vim, and I think I like it (still kinda hard to get used to switching modes and not using the arrow keys, though, but I'm getting used to it). So I think I vote for vim.

The only problem with gvim is that I can't copy/paste or drag n' drop text in and out of other apps with my mouse. Haven't thought of it before but maybe using vim in a terminal emulator (instead of gvim) would fix this.

For a general-purpose quick text editor I use kwrite.
