I'll chime in a give a vote for vim. As NiLuJe noted, there is a steep learning curve. Anyone interested in testing the vim waters slowly, could start out with cream. Cream is an extension to vim that makes vim more accessible but the real power of vim comes when you learn how to drive it with the keyboard.
