Hi guys! I've tried a significant number of text editors for a while and I always kept coming back to gedit. I'm slowly learning vim. I use these mainly for python, c and html/css. These are some I've tried : Kate - A bit heavy. But still has a good amount of features. Also kept filling up my command line Sublime 2 - Has a lot of necessary (and unnecessary) features. Suitable for lazy people like me Emacs - Good, but not my cup of tea. Eclipse - Too heavy and is an IDE. And I've been told IDEs are not good for learning code. So, I want to know what your favorite text editors are (with a GUI).
