    As the title states. What is your daily driver and why? Just want to hear what others think. Thanks!

    vi/vim: It is available on every linux machine.

    vi, not really a favourite as such and with a steep learning curve, but like @Steini86 i know it's always going to be on a server, so it's what i always end up using, so much so i keep finding myself typing :w, :q! and :wq in other editors... :oops:

    and i absolutely hate emacs, don't know why, just never been able to get on with it.

    After I knew nano, I prefer using it until now, as it is very user friendly compared to vi.

    Emacs. Been using microEmacs first, then full Emacs. I know how to use vim if nothing else is available. On Debian GNU/Linux command editor brings up a sensible editor (usually nano).
