I can't see the point of having CLI and GUI programs in the same list. I use nano and gedit (or mousepad), depending on what I'm doing.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...7/#post4223031 has an explanation of why some of the polls include nominees that may not be directly comparable.

vi / vim has been my editor of the year, the decade, and the quarter century. I wonder if, in another 25 years, there will still be a vi-like editor in common use. Would Joy have guessed that vi would still be around (I started to say viable) after close to 35 years?

Right now I use vim because that's what is installed on my boxes, but I don't use much that is peculiar to vim.

Nothing compares to Vim. Period.

BTW, I'm quite sure you didn't use it as regularly to put it
into the IDE department list this year ...as always

Anyways, cheers for the winner.

After using emacs, no way I can stand using another editor... (excepting vi when logging as root for VERY tiny stuff). Everything can be done extremely fast, practically detects any encoding of any language, and if you can think it, you can automate it!
I keep pressing Ctrl-P or Ctrl-N even in my browser><.
