I prefer joe. It's not as hard to use as vi (easier key combinations), but powerful. But it does not use mouse.

Console or GUI? your asking two different things.. For either case, try Emacs (for Console) or Xemacs (for something resembling a GUI).. or for that matter, Nedit or CoolEdit (Much more GUI

search the box network (, google, or freshmeat for an editor called "Minimum Profit". Itīs a console editor with mouse support, auto indentation, and support for multiple language highlights.

Peace out...
