I've been playing with Neovim from time to time, but it hasn't been able to replace Vim for me yet.

As a big fan of Scintilla, my vote goes to SciTE. Lightweight, even with a full suite of plug-ins. Handles extremely large files with ease and is my goto app whenever I need a text editor.

Atom this time

I still use vim (primarily gvim) most and occasionally use Kate, but I have been using Atom on some projects and quite like it - great for use with Angular2 / Typescript - and voted for it to give it a higher profile.

For basic file editing, I'm using gedit/xed.

But voted Atom, because it's nice to have git integration, project overview and a few other features when doing some heavyweight work.

I don't often use CLI editors, but when I do, vim. I'm not very good at using it, but hard to become good at using a rarely used tool.

Geany. It may not garner the greatest number of votes, but it's definitely my favorite
