You might be a linux user if:
"You keep hitting esc to change into command mode, when you typing on someone elses computer"

Definantly vim, of course it isn't realy fair to put vim and vi on seperate lines as it will make it apear that emacs is more popular than vi/vim. :P

I've noticed many people saying "vi and vim should be the same item to vote for", but if my memory serves, in the past few years of voting, they were together and people were constantly asking them to be separated. Because, really, vi != vim.

Okay Jeremy,

I'm just not comfortable with this particular poll.

I don't see xemacs up there along with emacs, etc., and I don't see Elvis, or Stevie as they relate to vi.

What I'm saying is, how can you have a real comparison of prefs when you dilute vi between the choices of vi and vim when there's only one emacs choice?

Yes, most folks that choose vi are actually running vim, and so the poll is further askew. I think that one radio button that says 'vi/vim' would be better.

Ah heck, I'm just gonna vote for pico then

I'm sure there will be dozens of people who are not comfortable with each particular poll. There's no pleasing everyone. If Jeremy were to take into account everyone's comfortability, there would be no polls at all.

No need to get a bee under your bonnet - vim wins every year by a landslide.....

Geany, because it has compiler integration. The problem with vim (especially vim.tiny) is the fact that it's impossible to position the cursor in the right place. I *always* use nano in the shell, as you can use the arrow keys to position the cursor, something you *cannot* do with vim.

Edit: And Gedit, Kate, and Mousepad are good too, but they don't integrate with compilers as well.
