Ironically, I don't use org-mode much. I do however, edit text, in one form or another, with pretty much evertyhing I use my computer for.
True about org-mode, it's the best. Ever since I learned it I use it for creating all TODO lists (this one is obvious), organizing my knowledge on different subjects, creating shopping lists, accessing local JIRA instance thanks to org-jira mode, creating inventory lists. The best thing about org-mode is that it's just a plain text. You can edit it with any text editor, what Emacs gives you are nice keybindings and coloring. I wondered then what is the actual reason behind org-mode usefulness. I read somewhere that org-mode just represents the way people really think, they think in points in a very simple way. They don't know out of the box if what they are thinking about at the moment is URGENT/NON-URGENT/SHOULD-GO-TO-HOME-OR-RATHER-WORK-CATEGORY.

Real life example: recently someone I know was looking for a program to keep record of books he has. He was looking for multiple programs on his Android tablet, it took me 1 second to know what should be used for this purpose: org-mode. Especially that there is a mobile org-mode for Android

And yes, I know at least one guy that was a hardcore vi user that started to use Emacs along with vi because of org-mode Big thanks to Carsten Dominik for creating org-mode! It made my life easier, and that's the whole point of technology, isn't it?

Actually I liked both Kate and Emacs. But as I often use Kate, so I voted for it.

There is only VIM!...QVIM/VIM-qt has also become quite polished and I now prefer it to GVIM when a GUI version is required.

Sublime Text 3 is my favorite. Can you add it?

While some of the recent Official LQ Polls have been multi-vote, we have no plans for that in the MCA's at this time.

Notepad++ for me ... but if anyone knows of anything that can handle _really_ big files, I would like to know ...

But when I have to do something in Linux: nano -Kw

I voted for KWrite. I've been getting into a lot more CLI of late, and I prefer vi for that.

If you are referring to Notepad under Windows, when I must work under Windows, I usually use Wordpad, which is able to work with very large files. I don't know what the limit might be. Wordpad is rather primitive compared to linux text editor options that I prefer, but it has enough options to be useful, and I found it better than Notepad.

NVI

My favorite text editor wasn't listed, and that is nvi, which is an enhanced version of the BSD vi with binary capabilities.
