The only one I've used to any extent in Linux is gedit.
Prefer EditPad Pro 5.x in Windoz, to tell the truth, which I bought about 12 years ago and have used ever since!
Attempting to learn to use kate, but not there yet.

A difficult choice for me because I use vim and Geany constantly. Voted Geany this time.

One of my friends was told during a summer research job to use Emacs or Vi over nano as it's "professional". In my heart I have yet to forgive whatever professor told her that.

Nano stays out of my way. Emacs is more than I usually need, and Vi is best for those with some sort of masochistic '80's nostalgia.

I prefer Vim, a solid editing tool once you learn how to use it. I often use the GVim GUI version.

Exclamation

I picked midnight's editor as it really is my fave.
I can't see gvim and it "saved my life" many a time on X

The mcedit however is largely underestimated editor now that its development has picked up?

The all time classic vi. Simple and super advanced at the same time. Always there when you need it :)

GVim is the same Vim, just with a graphical UI. The codebase is the same, when you're building it, you can choose to build with or without GUI.
