Votes cannot be changed. Keep in mind that being Open Source is only a requirement for categories that have "Open Source" in the title.

With the late entry of Pluma, alas it's bound to get few votes as most folk have voted already on the other text editors.

Vim repeated as the winner this year. I usually like to use it. I know that it has cut and paste, but if I cut a phrase from another app, I haven't always been able to reliably paste it in vim by pushing p. I will need more work with this.

You might find the following threads useful....

Compiling vim for use in xterm with primary and clipboard registers, * and +

Slackware 14.1: copy/paste with Vim in Xfce Terminal

I now work almost entirely in Tmux'd shells and have configured Tmux to handle all shell related clipboard operations, so I don't often stumble over the Vim config any more - but I recall always being able to resolve it by recompile and/or simple configs.

It will also depend on your distribution, of course.

I use VIM in terminal mode and QT-Creator in GUI mode. VIM is horrible for programming in C or C++. The search for a word results in the word being highlighted in color on color (example, yellow on yellow). If VIM is supplied, it needs to be supplied with a good default color scheme to distinguish the highlighted word.

When within (braces), with VIM you cannot tell if you are on the brace or just at the b as in (b...)

I normally turn off highlighting.

dugan, I know you do a lot of web stuff, do you use reactjs? If so, did you manage to get neovim to play nicely with jsx syntax (indentation, etc.)?

If that's their attitude, you just might be!
