Proponent of Nano because?

In my opinion even with a GUI the graphic editors can be more of a burden than a simple console style. Whether a mouse will work in it or the Boarder Window is fancy or not are separate aspects which I believe is overlooked in which I also did.

Re: Which is the best for text editor on GUI?

Hmmm, I guess saying gVim is cheating.
It's kindof a broad range of programs, with everything from mousepad to Code::Blocks, but I think the best general purpose text editor is Geany, which I used to use quite a bit before I learned the beauty of Vim. It's got plenty of features for programming while still being good for everyday tasks. If you want a good IDE, I've always loved Eclipse.


gui, text editor
