Why? It's easy for me to use. I imagine emacs, vim, etc are quite powerful, but being as I grew up in the Age of the Desktop Environment, they just aren't intuitive to me.

I've never gotten why vim is so popular. I can't stand it.

+1 for Geany as well. A decent editor with syntax highlighting, plus all the good IDE stuff.

The instant search feature of Geany is excellent.

Ha!

Vim won!

I voted for Notepadqq, but I suppose I can see why people voted for Vim.
