I definitely vote Emacs as "Editor of the Year" as this last year this fairly ancient bit of software has picked up an awful lot of steam.

The Melpa package repo has been boiling with new releases of very nifty packages.

Emacs may be old, but wow! It is alive and very active!

Why no Visual Studio Code? Pretty much Atom, but way more responsive - https://www.google.lt/search?q=atom+...hrome&ie=UTF-8

Actually, I either use vi or nano most of the time.

(I think I voted for mcedit, because that is what I use when I'm using mc. )

VSCode is in the IDE category.

Shouldn't Atom be in the IDE category as well?

It is, and has been since the beginning.

It's also here, so it could win twice while the almost identical VS Code only gets one chance. Just wondering!
Sorry.

Sublime BUT...

This was an interesting vote. 90% of my text editing is done in Midnight Commander. You can't beat it for light weight text editing, OTOH for major text editing I love Sublime since the colored text makes it easy to keep track of where you are.
