    On Linux I mostly use GNU Nano (or Pico), I use vi now and then as it's common on *nix. On Cygwin/Windows I use Nano agin. On plain Windows I use PFE.

    My second editor on Linux would be Kate, it's nice and simple, but has enough features to be useful. I loath vi, but I'm trying to learn it so it is my other second application. On Windows I've used TextPad, which is okay.

    I mosty use nano/pico because they run in a console, which gives them an edge over a GUI application. I suppose if nano/pico didn't exist then I'd use vi as my first editor, and Kate would still be my second choice.

    The main reason I use one thing over another is probably familiarity, it's the same with Linux, I know Debian better than Red Hat, so I prefer it, that's not to say that one is better than the other.
