My personal preference is for Vim (http://www.vim.org/). It's standard
Unix vi with all the features (like color highlighting, text folding,
etc.) that you might want in a programmer's editor. If vi isn't your cup
of tea, you won't like Vim. But if, like me, you've grown used to the
flexibility of vi's modal keybindings, you'll love it. To give you an
idea, I am actually twice as productive, roughly, in Vim as in another
editor. This is only a subjective measure, but there you go.
