I used Quanta for a while for editing ASP web scripts. Also Bluefish. Now, thanks to listening to advice in this forum, I use Kate. I had occasion to use Quanta again yesterday and did not like it. It's close to Kate but not close enough. :)
For plain text, depending on what I am doing, I use (now) either Kate or Gedit.
One thing that drives me nuts on ALL of the linux editors I've used: When you hit the Find box and try to scroll down to a previous search string using the Down key it don't go! You ALWAYS have to use the mouse. Very annoying.
Otherwise, as a very-long-time Windows user (and still having to use it for some things) I very much like linux (my flavour is Ubuntu).
