Oh no, not *that* question! :)

VIM, use it for everything (even write mail in it).

Want my .rc? (basic, settable options for writing plain text)

Text, text editors, word processors, it's quite an obsession.
It's been an obsession for a long time. There's even a guide
I wrote for people who still have to deal with plain text on
the web (originally intended for the fan-based writing group:
alt.tv.x-files.creative/ long stories in plain text and quite
a few were turning up with lousy formatting => unreadable).

The guide does contain a few *old* editors/w.processors that
might not be known, and the outside URLs haven't been checked
for a while.

For those interested:

TOC here (for those in a hurry):
