    Default Favorite Text Editor?

    I don't want to start a religious war but I'm looking for a little information from power users.

    What's your favorite editor? (note: I'm trying to be politically correct by not asking for the "best" editor)

    I've been using Kwrite & Nano, both seem to be sufficient but I'm curious about what other members typically use.

    Thanks.

    When I'm doing VA/Pentest work I don't usually have big requirements for editing text. vi and kwrite usually fit the bill. On Winblows notepad or if I have to write/debug code sometimes TextPad.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    I guess I'm old school, I prefer 'vi'.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    I used to be a vi guy, but years of stripping comments out of php.ini files and the like has led me to use nano...

    Anything BUT "VI",
    I could never get used to it.
    I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!

    I suck at vi although I can use it. I like nano or kwrite is fine too. I need to get one of those mugs.

    That mug is awesome! Maybe if I got it I would understand VI a little better..
