    I use vi/vim most of the time. It's something that every *nix admin needs to know how to use, because a lot of those other editors aren't included in default packages, and you can't just go installing stuff on production machines to edit 1 .conf

    I've gone for vim and kate. I basically work with the terminal all the time, and every time I need to do something quick the first command I key in is vim. However when it's more complex work I need to be doing, such as coding for my personal operating system project, I use kate, primarilly for its sessions and support for vim keys. I've even gone so far as to bind the ctrl+alt+k combination to start kate, which then asks me which session I want to start.

    I don't really need to automatically switch between source files when trying to find a function. I like grep better because it you keep track of where your files are at, and in whether or not they should be moved out to another module.
