Vim/gvim rules in my book. I love it, and I recently started doing my own color scripts for it too.

I like vi and sed the thing I really like is that they're always there no matter what flavor of *nix I'm on at the time. As constant as all the other basic file tools and I can't imagine why anyone would not include them in an installation.

Column editing like textpad or UltraEdit

If you know how to mark a rectangular selection such as a
column and delete it with Ctrl-W please tell us how to do it.

A little bit of real help is much better than much bragging.

Not knowing UltraEdit I don't know what Column-Edit means...

What is it? :}

In Emacs I can do rectangular selections and
manipulate those ...

Text editor

VIM, for sure. It does take some getting used to, but it is efficient once you learn it.

For me, Emacs and KATE. VI/VIM is a good editor, but I just find emacs a bit easier.
