Suggestion for future...perhaps there should be two categories: graphical and command line...

gvim for me. But it's not on the list.

As always, I hate to have to decide here. I'd still choose Acme this year, if I must...

It is a shame that development halted long time ago, but it is still my fav editor on both Linux and Windows: elvis
gvim is a second choice, but no single feature ever motivated to change from elvis, not even better Unicode support.

It would be VSCode if it were in this category. I currently have this:

Code:
export VISUAL='code --wait'
It is definitely not neovim. They've had issues with their nightly build infrastructure for months, and none of their exciting new plugins or lua scripts are taking that into account and releasing against the versions of neovim that you can actually get binaries for.

nedit is missing. I still use it - although that is only the second on my list. gvim is the first.
