Always the hardest for me.

I chose Vim, but that's almost like saying vi, and I would really like to see a tabulation of each of them, as well as both of them, since so many Vim users will simply pick 'vi', as I did last year.

It just seems that the resulting rank for either one will be diluted by the other. I know we've discussed this before, but maybe next year vi/VIM would be a good selection instead of having one for each of them.

But then even that is a close call, sometimes I use gVIM, even though I find it kinda weird.

And I love Bluefish, Geany, Kate, and Eric IDE and use them all. I also use Leafpad and Beaver sometimes too for down and dirty quick things.

Hm... RedCar... I'm not familiar with that one I'll have to check it out!

Oh, and if you're running Slackware, I think vi is still Elvis, isn't it?

Can we list Beaver here too?

This is so fun!

Gedit - The only gnome program I am still using, I just can't find one that's better or more versatile.

i have become one of those emacs guys this year.

... though, props to joe. suse have joe as standard, and it makes sense. joe has modes for emacs, vi, and more control methods.

but still... i'm voting emacs. ^_^ i dont know another text editor i can use for irc, for video editing, for making ascii art, for... the list is quite, quite extensive. but even tho i just use it as a text editor these days, it's still winning me over, more and more. testimony to using mature software.

Plain ol' gedit seems to do everything I need. No reason to get fancy when simple gets the job done.

I'd have voted for Pluma if it were available.

I really like Geany. I use it for everything from config files to web design and Python. I actually started using it a few years ago on Windows oddly enough. Through SSH and outside of X, I stick to nano.

Why even have this poll? VIM is and always will be king in this department.
