Okay, you brought it up ! ;-) EMACS.
If you use Unix, then this is your supersuite. This is your Microsoft Office for plaintext editors. Pros: Easier to learn than vi Many man many many many features Supercustomizeable Integrates tightly with Unix operating system Cons: A little on the bloatware side vi is more widely available (at least it was back in the early 80s when a few MB of disk space was a big deal) vi is much more slim Knowing vi is useful, but I find I'm much more productive in emacs. And when I want to use an Aqua-compatible editor, I use BBEdit lite because I'm poor and it's pretty good (a tiny bit buggy on OS X). There's actually an emacs for OS X that I haven't gotten around to trying yet, maybe I'll give the compile a shot tonight.
