roflmao-kate is getting more votes than emacs!!!

emacs is just too confusing. all this ctrl stuff. arrg

vim is awesome. i can do SO much in vim SO fast, and i probably only know 1/5th of what it can do. and its gotta be vim, its got buffers and stuff, elvis just doesn't cut it

Same here. I even use a common .vimrc setup :-)

I voted for Nano, as it's the only one of these editors I use. By choice, I use mp, but nano's not bad as a spare editor.

I like to use nano for console based editing tasks (like small configuration files). But jEdit is just so fantastic for programming, so I voted for it.

Sorry, but I should have voted for Nedit this is one powerful tool not just an editor..


Forget vi/vim or emacs

Later, just say Nedit

I turned away from (x)emacs after all the thousand initialisation files (lisp code mixed with settings) nearly made me insane.
Now I am happily developing jEdit with jEdit

Won't vote since I have seen the results before voting and the fact that I don't use much or editors in UniX

vim, most of the time. Yes, it's awesome, and there's still a lot of functionality I haven't explored yet.
Sometimes, when I feel like keeping a dozen files open the same time, I use Bluefish.

vi is to editors as the Yankees are to baseball:
The most popular, but also the most hated......
