Hi All,

I spent a lot of time reading about this editor thing before I am posting. So here am I.

It is luck that there are many choices - for free :-).
One can stick to one or use more of them.

For me:

vi - as I learned it in school.
vi - The reason that Steven Lebmark gave about different machines: During past and recent
work I connect to various Unix platforms
     So for any editing vi is here. You'll find it anywhere. Habits do meter too.
     I press ":w" at other non-vi places too :-)

vim - Nice when I do some edit or better program localy. I learned about it on Mandrake Linux
   before, since than I use it on Windows too.

emacs/xemacs - They seem complicated is you have VI habits (at least this is true for me).
I'll try to give them another chance though.

Couple of friends with Unix background that I have, are also in Vi/Vim mood.
( Yet, I hope I'll make friends using Emacs and others :-)
