Leafpad (voted for it) works well for me when running openbox.

If I'm running KDE or Gnome, Kwrite, or Gedit do their jobs well enough.

I tried to use ed for a while. You can be pretty fast with it when you figure out the techniques.

But vi is divine. It is the ultimate perfection of text editing brought to us by the Gods of Unix. Part of its greatness is that it's based on ed in the form of ex. ed is the truly ancient way, comparable to carving source code into big rocks. In the cult of vi, vi is not only a text editor. In Old Norse, "vi" means "sanctuary" or "shrine". If you killed someone in a shrine, you were "varg i véum" ("slayer in the sanctuary") and condemned to outlawry. Code written with vi is better than code written with other editors; therefore vi is sacred. The first thing I do on any computer I use is to download the traditional vi source, compile it and put it in $HOME/bin, for peace and harvest.

I chose Pluma because I like that text editor a lot (and it's the one that comes with the MATE desktop environment that I use) but for a command-line text editor I prefer nano to the more popular vim and emacs because I just can't understand why the other two have to be so ridiculously complicated (nano allows one to enter text just by typing on the keyboard; the other two require many obscure keypresses and the changing of "modes" before one can even attempt to insert text).

Vim for 2015 and mastering vi in 2016?
