Either of Emacs <URL:> or Vim
<URL:> are excellent general-purpose editors that
have strong features for programmers of any popular language or text

They are available for every major OS, including MS Windows, are mature
and have enormous community support, and are free software and community

Learn either one, and you won't have to keep switching to different
editing tools for different programming tasks.
