kate makes editing (la)tex files a breeze... the popup terminal is the best thing since C-z on the CLI.

Ya, gotta agree with the previous two posts. Kate has passed the point of being useful and has become something of an addiction.

Vi, the original Vi or nvi that's almost the same :-)
I'm getting tired of VIM, too much bloating and they still want to add new features... :-(

Ah, vi... it is the one true editor. I tend to use it all the time. I'll fire up vim as well, so I can get my split windows. One day all you non-vi using heathons will convert... or else you will eat flaming death. The choice is yours.

but i voted back when I was a n00b 3 weeks ago, and I think I might have made a mistake and voted for gedit
