As I sit at work here waiting for this computer I'm on to render a video out, I have an SSH window connected to my laptop across the room so I can continue to use Naim to talk with my friends (think AIM with no windows, all ascii text). That's when the question hits me, which text editor?

Personally, my favorite is vim (or vi). I refuse to even touch or install Emacs. I don't use vim all the time, sometimes using pico instead. But I try to only use pico when I might totally screw up some really important system configuration file since I'm still learning vim.

So when it comes to editing text files (plain text, like .cfg, .conf, .ini, ntkrnl.exe, etc), which is your favorite editor and why?

I just use notepad, and I don't use that too often. When I do, it's for editing Doom resources (DECORATE, DEHACKED, KEYCONF, etc.)

EDIT. Forever.

Nostalgic feelings aside, I actually use Notepad a lot.

Notepad.

I use EditPad for HTML though. It's color-coded and allows for mass text replacements over multiple documents which can come in handy.
