Since I mostly use CLI for editing VIM all way! Although much respect to Geany for GUI editing. In fact maybe this should be two polls, one for CLI and one for GUI.

There is another one for IDEs, so I actually commited a mistake here: should have voted for mcedit instead of Geany here, and Geany there, but it seems I can't change my vote anymore

Yeah I think Geany is officially an IDE; however, I'm glad it's listed here as although it is my favorite GUI text editor, it is not my favorite IDE. Wait since CLI editors were included I voted for VIM anyways.

Vim. Emacs Ctrl + Meta keys are insane.... Vim can do a lot of what Vi could't.

leafpad

Leafpad is great.
Simple, and without the annoying habit of gedit of opening an extra tab you don't want, which you then have to close.

Definitely vim.

And when I'm feeling lazy I use the cream add-on.

Lots of capable editors, but I guess here it makes sense to pick something less complex than ema^H^H^H an operating system-in-an-operating system. nano.
