I like now TEA Text Editor. I use it under Ubuntu 12.04. It works fine with different encoding. With it I trancoded into UTF-8 many Russian subtitles files for Israelite moves. No one text editor can do this, and so quickly.
Geany and the Midnight Commander Editor (mcedit) on the CLI. It is integrated with mc and is not only the easiest to use on the command line (no need to learn anything), but has also a very good set of features.
Vi (nvi is my choice to be more precise). In 2012 I discovered enpi script for joe editor, and I just couldn't stop typing in joe and printing letters. So I voted for joe as the editor of the year. However, always going back to Vi (nvi) from joe/enpi if I don't need GUI-looking formatted letters.
But that's for an old carry-everywhere laptop where I don't have any graphic environment. On my PC tower at home I use plain Leafpad and Libreoffice. Vi too in xterm occasionally, as I have xterm bound to ctrl+alt+t so it's quite a quick way to use vi.
