I'm surprised, too many editors for me. I vote for vim.

Honestly, I'm torn between vim and xed. They're both great text editors, although one serves some of my needs, while the other serves the rest.

Though, Notepadqq looks interesting. I've never heard of it before, but I'm curious, so I'm going to try it.

Use Kate most often, followed by nano, then vi.

Midnight Commander Editor, 1st place, followed by Mousepad and Kwrite.

Emacs this year, I am a vim guy, but for the past year for some odd reason I really do not understand, I have been using Emacs more and more.

Only use nano for a distribution's original set-up.
I say Vim in 1st, followed by Sublime & Atom. I keep both the Sublime & Atom text editors set up on secondary rigs that family members use.

Leafpad, the Rodney Dangerfield of text editors.

where is ed(1)?
does anybody still use it?
I use vi primarily but have used sam.
I tried emacs once, it was too easy, you just start typing.
I use ed occasionally and am glad it is there.

Jeremy does not want to add ed, obviously. But sam is almost the same thing...

I am voting for gedit.

That is not to say the others are better, it is because I am only starting to learn how to uses text editors and am starting with gedit.

So, I am voting with a lack of experience as a beginner with text editors.Maybe next year I will vote differently.

It's too bad Kakoune isn't on the list. It's inspired by vim, but has subtle changes (and a few not-so-subtle ones), and is a lot more minimalist. Vim is my second favorite editor, though.
