favorite editors

I have tried out a large number of editors over the years. These are my favorites.

In bash I use mp. http://www.triptico.com/software/mp.html

In Gnome I use gedit.

In KDE I use kedit.

Beer holds a close second.
It is not actually a text editor though.

On the eight day, after fully resting, God took on his greatest task. Weaving binary numbers, he created the perfect binary, and used stardust to puff life into it. He called it VI and only after many enduring trials were humans whispered the secret - the perfect combination of simplicity and power - and told how to improve on it. And so was born VIM which stepped down from the heavens to lead humans to salvation.

Though I'm a rookie, I like VI very well. I don't know how to use it very well yet, but it ain't bad like I use it now. Probably best of all, it's standard Linux so it's there anytime you want it. Everytime! With VI, you only need three commands: Hitting "a" lets you edit the file you loaded. Hitting Esc. then puts you back into command mode. hitting :q! lets you bail. :wq is save and quit, and :w is save and continue. That's all I know and need at this moment.

yeah...where in the world did people come up with the key combinations for emacs? Because it looks like they pulled it out of their arse. And all the keys are so out of place... true, vi has its perks. But hey, its vi. so you can't complain...
