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

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.

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.
