What editor do you use? And why?
My favourite editor is probably gvim. I like it because it's so flexible: I can use vim commands when I can remember them, and menus or icons when I can't. And it does syntax checking too."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"

I use emacs because that is what we use at work. We use exceed and emacs seems to work pretty good with it. I have tried vim and gedit but not enough to like or dis-like them.
Great poll question. I might have to try out some different editors.

I voted "other" because I'm currently running KDE4, and I always use Kwrite when running that.
When running Gnome, I always use Gedit.
When running Xfce, or any standalone window manager, I always use Leafpad.
When running a console in Linux, I generally use vi for the majority of work to be done, but will sometimes use nano if it's some minor edit to be done.oz

I use vim when on a server otherwise it is mostly gedit or an appropriate IDE (which probably doesn't really count as other). I must try gvim as it has the potential to replace gedit. I have recently tried emacs but don't like it much however, joe is a good editor especially if you remember Wordstar!

Depends what I am doing. For sysadmin work, I tend to use vim/gvim, but for developing I like KATE.

I hardly ever use this, so for the few times I do, I just use the default gedit.Registered Linux user #526930

I have only tried to use two. nano and gedit.
Between the two, I prefer "nano" since working in the terminal never fails to give me a false sense of being a certified geek.nujinini

For most things, I go for vim. It can be used on any distro with any DE/WM, so it's always a goto option.
For really small things, though, I'll sometimes use Mousepad.
