If in gui - for my basic needs I use leafpad. If out of X I use nano mostly and occasionally delve into vim.

some of the editors on that list call themselves IDE.
i'm not a programmer, but i use geany by default.
and nano. i'm too stupid for vi*.

Emacs was, is and forever will be the best text editor because of it's incredible extensibility and customizability! It works equally well in GUI and out of it. Emacs can be the text editor, IDE, terminal emulator, file manager, organizer, music player, mail client, web browser and whatever you want. Moreover it maybe the most legendary computer program in history.

In command line mode I'll use vim or nano, graphically it's usually gedit or pluma. However, vim got my vote since pluma is missing from the poll.

Voted nano, again, as it's pretty much the only one I use. Not feature-rich or fancy but it does the job with minimal fuss.

vim, always used it, always will. I'll use kate for quick edits to something from the gui, but if I'm doing something as root it's always vim.

Great category. 2 suggestions:

1. jed seems to be missing. I give it really heavy use. -- http://www.jedsoft.org/jed/

2. It would be convenient to split this category into "console editors" and "Graphical-mode (X11) editors"
