Always an interesting poll.

I use gedit leafpad and nano

Hevithan 12-28-2011 05:14 PM

Gedit ... I've become used to it. It is default on pretty much all the distros I have tried, and it is pretty simple and straight forward.

nano. Personal choice though as it fits my circumstances nicely: simple interface, functional, works well through SSH.
I'm not someone who falls in love with a text editor though so that may change next year, who knows?

Vim and vi -- there really isn't any viable alternative if you actually need to do text editing.

I graduated from pico to nano years ago. :)

I of course use vi or vim when I feel the need. I frequently use KWrite and currently playing with Kate.

Please include Sublime Text 2.

Emacs ftw

KWrite or nano, depends on what runlevel I'm at.

Vim is the only one I prefer. Or is it because I spent so much time learning it that I did not get a chance to look at others? :)

Mousepad for easy GUI use, and Nano for console based.

I use Mousepad the most.

lewnidas_ 12-30-2011 11:12 AM

nano user here....

raju.mopidevi 12-31-2011 08:58 AM

Kwrite but I like nano too.

Spending most of my time in a terminal... Vim/Vi.

Kind regards,

vi / vim only no matter if its gui or console.
