Oh, come on! I'm pretty sure it's spelled n-o-t-e-p-a-d. I know it's a Windows program, but it runs perfectly on Wine. How can you forget it! There are soooo many features, making it the best IDE ever! You can open, save, and even print! Wow! It even lets you cut, copy, and paste! Amazing!!! You can even search for text and replace it, change the font, and even undo just one step. Oh, and you can... well, I guess that's about it... But man! this thing is jam-packed with features!

Mine always seem to be Nano or Vi. Both are equally as good for my needs.

"Emacs outshines all other editing software in approximately the same way that the noonday sun does the stars. It is not just bigger and brighter; it simply makes everything else vanish." – Neal Stephenson, "In the Beginning was the Command Line"

I'll leave it up to the imagination what I voted for.

Too bad it doesn't run on Linux.

For a graphical editor, I like Kate. In a terminal, nano.

I know Writetype (A word processor not office suite) dose not fit in any where but it rocks. This year I've picked Vi because in a pinch it has always got my back.

Had to vote nano. I ought to use vi and nano lacks (or has hidden) some features I'd like to see (like copying and pasting parts of text) but I use it for editing all system files and it does the job nicely.
