I use and like Nano it's simple and gets the job done.

Sometimes I'll use vi-

I voted Emacs but it's the first year that I had problems deciding. This year I've been using vim more and more.

I manage with KWrite in X, and nano in console/CLI. Every year I keep telling myself I should learn how to use vi/vim/elvis, but it never happens.

vi is available on any system and simple tasks don't need any deeper knowledge :-)

For me, it's Vim, followed by Vi and Nano. Despite the fact that it's 2012, the CLI isn't going anywhere!
