Text Editor of the Year
This one is always fun ;)

As a console based editor i tend to use vim. In KDE i like kate / kwrite. Scite looks good on ms windows.
I think each editor has its advantages and drawbacks.

How does the voting actually works? Can't find the button to select one of those... (haha)

I use a lot of those depending on what I want to do. KWrite is like scrap paper for me. I rarely save things I use KWrite for but I still use it. I definitely use vim whenever possible. I've aliased vi to vim on my computer so that I don't make any mistakes in getting to my baby. I also use gvim every so often but it looks funky and I don't know how to personalize it. I still use it though. vi/vim has my vote.

Is it possible to include gvim in with vi,vim? It's just as useful and it does get used. Plus it's only fair... xemacs is bundled with emacs. ;)

Nano is my choice. Quick, simple. I don't program so a quick "nano -w" to edit config files is all I need.

Where’s sam (you know, from plan9)? Anyway, since it wasn’t there, I voted for vi.

Is it this time of the year already? Seems like only a couple months ago I was voting for last year's. Where did the time go?

vi for console, gedit for gui (mine anyways).
