I’m not planning to start a flame war here. Just curious of your opinion. Personally I’m a vi (or rather vim) person – simply because it’s the editor I know better. It’s smaller, simpler, and easier to configure (ie. you don’t need to know the syntax and rules of elisp to modify your .vimrc). Granted, Emacs is more powerful, but I tend to use vim as a general purpose text editor for editing configuration files, writing shell scripts and etc.
When I want to code something serious in Java I usually roll out the heavy artillery – eclipse. When I write LaTex I use either TexNicCenter or Kile. How about you? Do you like vi, emacs or something else?
Anyone who says notepad will be LART’ed!
