You didn't include gvim, which is definitely my favorite editor, so I voted for vim.

From the list, Geany. Not exactly light, but a lot lighter than the big IDE's. A good syntax highlighting text editor. For the cli, nano. You don't have to remember a bunch of key combos to use it. Leafpad works ok but is too light. I saw where emacs can do syntax highlighting.

From the list, Acme. Just like every year since it was included.
Awesome allround tool.

Visual Studio Code should be here, not in "IDE of the year".

Geany/nano. Can't really make one choice here.
I can use it if I must, but I've never gotten into vi(m).

Doing so would have further split the votes, if not already by specifying separate categories for vi and vim!

I think there should be only one general package name, to avoid splitting votes between the same general package/application.

Sort of like how Ubuntu (Red Hat, and all the other SystemD derivatives) themselves with the objective for winning the popularity contest.

I envy people who understand how to use it. Every time I try, I give up. It surely looks interesting though!

cli vs gui

When I think of a text editor, I think of operating in terminal (mode). If I am operating in a gui, I think of something in the gui line. Hence, this year, thinking cli, I choose my default goto nano.
