nedit

I like nedit alot. You can use the mouse within it and it uses commands simliar to microsoft word. I'm gonna go on the record and say vi sucks.

Bug VI for me

Smilie I was new to Unix and didn't even know other editors existed when I started to use VI. Now I'm so used to it, I don't think I have the energy to learn another one!

vi

99% of the time 'vi'.

Used to use 'pico' few years back during school.

I use nedit most of the time, it's a little easier to use than vi (not as many "hot keys" to memorize), but can at times not be quite as robust, especially when dealling with large files. I guess that it really depends on what one is using it for, and one's preference, but both are good.
