For our general enrolment courses we usually have windows on the desktop and a linux server. Those who will be primarily using windows, use Perl on that and we provide them with PerlEdit. Everyone else sshes into the server and uses vim (almost exclusively) or emacs (occasionally) or nano (extremely rarely).  PerlEdit: http://www.indigostar.com/perledit.html It's free enough, easy to install, very easy to use, has some neat Perl features (syntax highlighting, perldoc lookup, inline error feedback). We'll swap it for something else that was more free, as easy to install and use, as soon when we find out about such.  Sometimes they think they're using vi, but they're not.
