I am using emacs+auctex for *tex edition. To edit configuration files I use vi incarnations: what system offers by default as original vi replacement: elvis in Slackware, vim in others.

"Real" and "Programmers" in whatever connotation -- I associate automatically FORTRAN with them.

Very amusing. In 1981 I coded in Fortran on an IBM/370, maintained my files using JCL and that all on punch cards of course. My fellow student choose to switch to Pascal, using a VSPC terminal, we both came from Algol60. Unfortunately that doesn't qualify me as a real programmer, I can't even remotely understand 360 assembly language.

I startet with FORTRAN in 1977 or 1978 on a Siemens system (BS2000, also punchcards) and changed later to JCL on a Fujitsu 200, connecting with terminals. Actually my nic is the most irksome error I used to produce when I came from a prolonged field season and forgot to dynamically link the input stream...

Interesting to see that Emacs is gaining tracion - when I mentioned it a few years back all I got were snears. Now, I think, org-mode has really brought a lot of new users to Emacs. Ironically, I don't use org-mode much. I do however, edit text, in one form or another, with pretty much evertyhing I use my computer for. And, you guessed it!! Emacs has a mode for that! https://xkcd.com/378/ IRC, IMAP, pretty much every programming language under the sun. Very nice to have a unified set of keybindings ported across protocol clients, etc. So... w/o further adieu, I vote Emacs

Tried pretty much all of these, and they all fail to deliver. I still have to switch back/forth to vim/geany because the two powers have never merged to a mature text editor solution.

...and supports emulation of the Wordstar editor, because sometimes you just need to boot up a time machine that'll take you back to 1983.

vim me to the moon

Started with Unix in 1987. In 1991 vim came out and I have loved it ever since.

My vote is vim.

Isn't jed a joe version?

'80 for me. Was at UC so vi was natually on the system. And nothing less than a godsend considering many/most compsci students of the day were still using punch cards. Never really got too excited about vim. Perhaps because I spent more time on pure Unix and vi was sure to always be there. As Linux displaced Unix I used vim because it was sure to always be there!

Fast forward a few decades and I'm now an Emacs user. All I can say is that I sure do wish I'd embraced learning Emacs a couple decades sooner.

Not to my knowledge, but both can emulate WordStar
