    XEmacs is a very nice editor when you have it configured right. That might take a while like one or two days but when you've done it, it's really a very nice tool.

    P.S.: Emacs has everythin' as long as you have the plugin
    #include "reallife.h"

    The same goes for gvim, although I think the default .vimrc file has syntax highlighting enabled as a default.

    LoL, call me old fashioned, but I like console Emacs the best. Although, XEmacs is pretty cool.

    Well, isn't it _a_bit_ confusing?

    I prefer nano, at least it doesn't take much space and is simple.

    I prefer gvim. I even wrote a syntax highlighter for GTK+
    wich can be activated by :set syntax=gtk

    Well, if you are talking about console emacs, it is not. It took me a couple minutes to become proficient in it. All you have to do is press f10 and you have your whole menu in front of you.
