Please add 'RedCar' to the list - its an excellent one written totally in Ruby, spread as a gem and really close to the power of TextMate that I use in my Mac.

Maybe the development team knows better.
Please see the official website:
Geany is a text editor using the GTK2 toolkit with basic features of an integrated development environment.
Anyway it's good for a small IDE .
But he can not beat, for example, with Eclipse.
It will lose the votes in both cases.

I vote for T.H.E., even if it is not on the list. The best for former Kedit/Xedit(VM 3270) users.

Shouldn't vi/vim be a single choice?

VIM = 994

Emacs! Mind you though, I've always had a problem with it freezing on Ubuntu (and only Ubuntu).

Steep learning curve compared to some others but also huge return on time invested. Yeah, I routinely use vi as sysadmin, as it is ubiquitous across pretty much all *nix servers, but this tends to be for quick edits. For anything more involved, emacs pays huge dividends. Also, org-mode totally rocks!

It's pretty immature when people keep pushing to have a program added to the poll after the person in charge says no.
