Vim will always get my vote, although I will say that as far as GUI editors go, Kate in "Vi-Mode" is pretty nice.

Real text editors get by with a steady hand, a paper clip, and a nine volt battery.

But why you say "joke"? Ed *is* The Standard Editor!

Voted leafpad, it takes care of all my modest requirements of editing system files and learning Python/Bash on, makes even Gedit seem cumbersome in comparison. Have Vim too just in case..

VIM will always be my favorite. I use it every day and couldn't be more happy with it.

I voted Vim, due to its flexibility and use of the keyboard. I like to use the GVim version of Vim. Sometimes, I use Kate when I want to do a cut and paste.

Downloads Justin Bieber OS immediately, fires up a terminal:

Code:
$ editor

?
Switches all his servers to Justin Bieber OS.

I always try to use the tool appropriate to the task and avoid having "favorites" (the leading cause of 'fanboyism').
That said,
I am ancient
Vi is ancient
We are ancient together.

So um... yeah, sure, Vi
