I do realize it's a short list, and I should have added a few more, but I tried to be broad in the categories, so I named some of the types. Emacs got it's own category cuz it's my fave and for us *nixers, it's popular.
Yeah, not fond of vi, I prefer nano if I were to go with a editor like that.
Not fond of KDevelop either, it's not a bad thing, I just prefer my editor and terminal.
I'm definitely NOT calling them equals, we can all agree that Kate is superior
I just listed that as a general category for those type of editors.
Glad to see all the feedback, it's interesting stuff.
