Proseletyse your text editor here

For Win: NoteTab Light http://www.notetab.com/ntl-gif.html
It's got tabs, automatic multi chunk pasteboard, strips html, all for 4MB. And a better set of converters than the default win ones.

For OS X - - Text editors are the fundamentalist religion for mac users. I dare not voice my preference, except to say that this one is also my word processor because it's so fast and so neatly converts stuff for Win readers.

For other nixes - - You can't go past Vi. It's brisk.

Wonder what the linguists use?

I run both an equal number of times throughout a day:

A nice simple, no frills text editor, Win32Pad, and ed, err, Vim (gvim actually).

I personally use alot of different things based on what I need but I find Programmer's Notepad to accomplish quite a bit and very nicely. I tend to rely on it more and more it seems.

Seconded, for simple text.

For heavy coding, either Visual Studio or Netbeans.

I'm a big fan of Notepad++

Being a cunning linguist, Wordpad.

For quick random edits, Programmer's Notepad on Windows and VIM everywhere else.
For Firefox extension and web scripting (PHP/Ruby/Perl/Python), the Mozilla-based Komodo Edit (relatively recent conversion from JEdit).
For mixed C++/Java projects, Eclipse. Sometimes forced into Visual C++ Express on Windows...
For pure Java projects, NetBeans (even though I should give it a try for Ruby on Rails stuff).

Sounds great nice setup, I have used NetBeans for other than just Java stuff too in a couple of instances and it was pretty good. Let me know if you find it good for RoR. I use notepad when I need something opened up quickly and without any formatting but coding I find Programmer's Notepad useful too for anything I don't do in the standard IDE like Visual Studios.

Hold on, are you telling me they took jEdit, which is free, and turned it into something you have to pay for?

Too bad jEdit is under-staffed. It's a nice concept.

Also, I just can't work with eclipse, in the same manner that I can't work on a bureau that's full with papers and other stuff. I find the interface in general to be disturbing. It really does demotivate me to do my work.
Which is why I use Netbeans.

Although I can't speak to that, if you want you can also use jGrasp, not the most awesome editor but it was actually not too bad when I was forced to use it not too long ago and its free. Just another option.
