I like Geany, because it is easy to use. (At least for me.)

Gotta go with vim. Once you spend the time to learn the commands, its power can't be matched. Syntax highlighting is a big plus for me, too.

After you invest the ridiculous amount of time necessary to learn how to use VIM properly, you really want to believe it's the best thing out there. :-) And so I maintain that it is.

Hmm, wish I could choose few of them, I love VIM its really the best and should get the award and then comes gedit, vi is okay. don't like nano and emacs it's irritating. This is just what I feel, I hope I haven't offended any of you.

Question This was really just too much!

I chose Vim to make it easy, and considering that it really is where I do 80% of my editing, was deserving of the vote.

Now... a vote for Vim is simply a vote for vi as far as I'm concerned, the same as choosing Elvis would be.

It's all vi as far as I'm concerned.

But what's so hard about choosing anything else?

Let's see... because I use and really prefer many of the others for particular things, like:

vim
vi
Kate
nano
leafpad
pico
joe
Scite
Midnight Commander Editor
KWrite
Mousepad
Geany

And Bluefish too. Which brings up another point... since Geany is in the list, it is described as an IDE and in the same vein, so is Bluefish, so Why is Geany in this list?

It's obvious why RadRails and Eclipse and Netbeans isn't, but maybe Geany and Bluefish should have been in the IDE section???

I hope that helps

Kindest regards,

.
