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. ...

What editor do you use? And why?

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!"I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.

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.
