The irony, of course, is that I frequently use gvim on the low-quality commercial operating system we're forced to use at work. I often get treated as something of a Luddite - but my files get edited much more quickly.

It was tough. I was torn between nano and vim, but I ended up voting for vim because I use it more often because of work.

I use Leafpad. For bigger jobs I just use Abiword. But just for editing li'l files, I don't need anything fancy.

Nano while using the terminal because it's installed on almost every distro and I can use it with my eyes closed and usually Kate for Desktop stuff. I voted Nano since most of my editing is done via command line.

3) Nano/pico 11%
3) & Kate/KEdit 11%
Emacs made rather a poor show; when I first started with Linux, there were supposed to be vi users and emacs users, and a lot of flack was exchanged between them. Now it seems vi (as vim) has triumphed.
Thanks for your input."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"

I use VIM for everything. It's a classic Unix editor that has a lot of power, and even BusyBox comes with a VI clone (although the clone is limited in functionality). It's very useful at work: if I have a file with 50,000 lines in it and I want to remove all the lines that don't contain a keyword, then I can get rid of thousands of unneeded lines in a few seconds. I wouldn't use anything else.
