Trying to pronounce it that way makes my jaw hurt!

You must be one of them foreigners from someplace else! ;)

vim :)

gedit. I usually spend a lot of time with leafpad or nano but i think gedit has the right balance of features and simplicity. Plus i don't have to spend all day learning how to close it ;)

As "elvis" is not in the list, I chose vi.
elvis is dead, long live elvis

I notice that ed is missing. Whatever happened to keyhole editing? ;)
It is an excellent "remote" editor - stick it in a script instead of awk or sed.

I chose SciTe for the simplicity.

Emacs with viper
 
I voted Emacs but note that I enable the viper vi emulation package...

I use vi - but live and learn, I didn't know Emacs could do that

KWrite in X, nano in console or terminal.
(I've been saying this for 10 years now: I will learn to use Emacs and Vi/Vim sometime.)

Medit. Fast, clean layout, a lot of options, desktop independent too.
