KWrite, because I like KDE, and it supports coding as well, like shows you where the functions are in your code, and displays different things in different colors to show different parts of your code. Like for example, the text in printf statements are in a different color to separate it from the actual code, so you can visually see that it's just the text that would be displayed on the screen.

I'll take sam this year (basically, a visual ed).

edit: It is a hard choice though. There's still Acme and TECO...
Still no multiple choices this year.

gotta vote geany again.
rightly, it is both in the IDE and text editor section.
though i never understand where the borderline is; i'm just not enough of a coder i guess.
but text (code, config) editing without syntax highlighting - impossible.

Clearly not impossible seems how the average teacher wouldn't want you useing it, while starting with the fundamentals.

I ticked vim because you haven't included gvim.

Leafpad, it's all I've ever used.

I went with neovim. It currently has better support for the best plugins (deoplete, languageClient-neovim, semshi) than regular vim does.

Medit. Simple, fast does the job when I need a quick and dirty edit of something where pico just won't do, and it's not worth the effort of firing up Netbeans.
