I tried to learn Emacs. I understand that it has loads of capabilities and features. Sadly, I just couldn't wrap my mind around the odd keyboard commands--totally unintuitive. Sticking with Vim and Pluma.

maybe because at the time of casting the vote, jed is not (yet) in the list to pick from.

Elvis is not on the list either. Maybe next year there should be

○ vi (ex)
○ vim (gvim)
○ a vi clone other than vim (please specify)

Sublime looks really cool. I wish it didn't cost $70. :-(

With some of those "text editors" in the list why not Eclipse? lol

My second vote would be Scite.

Eclipse is even worse than emacs. On my previous workstation it took a staggering 20 minutes to start up. OK, the (java) project was HUGE, but netbeans started with the same project in less than 2 minutes. I wonder for whom Eclipse was written. Probably for the same developers that use emacs, as no single key binding shows logic and - maybe worse - none of the context-sensitive menus (it is a GUI) shows any of the choices I was looking for. Netbeans does not suffer those braindead choices and the development community is very responsive too.
Not that I would ever use netbeans to work on anything other than java, so imho Eclipse and Netbeans (and there are several more that fit that bill like IntelliJ) *do* have editor functionality, some of it quite good actually, but they do not fit the presented list. These are more like complete development environments (IDE). Maybe many of the users here view emacs just like that
So, now I can be beheaded?

I like bloatware when I have cycles to spare. Last year I voted Kate (and like Kdevelop.) This year I've devoted myself to learn more CLI. Vi to me is a text editor but under the hood could be considered as IDE as Scite. I would guess?

Can you offer some concrete examples of logical key bindings? Remember that you brought in logic as the measure and not familiarity.

I suppose it must be such a broad poll considering everyone uses them for different stuff e.g: learning to code is best to use the simplest of text-only editors so you learn the code with out cheating.
