I believe one editor is superior to vi and that is xvile. xvile has the same finger feel as vi but opens in its own x window, has more buffers and the mouse can be used to actually do something. If I could get the syntax highligting to work I would use xvile exclusively.
As an alternative to xvile I use nedit. It has nice clean look and lots of useful features.
These are are my 2 favourite editors.

My first approach to a *nix based system was in 2001, when i began my studies of Computing Engineering. It was using a telnet terminal in windows, and using some basics commands.

We started programming Pascal. And before i knew that i was using Linux, i was learning to use VI for 'pascaling'.... funny, dont?

Something like a year after, i installed mandrake in my home pc. And when i started programming for bash and C, i did what i knew to do:


And later

vi helloworld.c

And i never changed.. I haev used anjuta, kate, gedit, but there's no place in earth where i feel more comfortable than VI.

Now, i'm assisting a programming course for my faculty, and i teach C to the kids.... and they are all using VI, i guess because they know that if they use BloodsheedDevC++ they will reprobe the course!!!!

Strike my previous one. I was browsing through some emacs sites and I learned that emacs does support sound, and now I am figuring out how to install them and use them.
