Ah, the editory wars... Use what works for you. For me, if not Emacs then I prefer vi over vim because it behaves more as I expect and does't seem as glitchy.

Emacs is great especially when editing a pile of codes.

Kwrite, or MC's editor. Can't live with those two.

I'm a big fan of the Midnight Commander, so MC's editor for me.

I like KWrite because it's the only editor I know that has a datestamp/timestamp function, making it suitable for keeping a journal or anything else where you'd like to note the date and time.

If this were a poll for worst editor, I'd vote for Kate. Kate is an kludge, with an overcomplicated interface and many extra features I have no interest in.

I would choose vim first. Because it makes you look cool. Especially if you are working on other systems that isn't linux like, the Mac OS. While Mac users are using the GUI, you can just use vi or vim in front of them and they will marvel on how your are functioning relying on GUI and a mouse.

Vim hands down, all text editing on my server is done on Vim. No Gui over VNC, or having to edit files off site, things can be done straight over SSH.

You should stick with Kwrite if you're using KDE, Kwrite is cool. But if you ever come around a GTK+ environment, you should try Geany for that feature. It is under de Edit menu.

EDIT: I just saw in your signature that you hate KDE4, so go for Geany! It comes with a interface a bit similar to Kate by default, but I make it look like KWrite by hiding the sidebar and messages panel under the View menu.
