Looks to me that it's more a question about what you are used to
rather than what is best…

I never understood this war thing anyway. Why not just let people use
whatever they want? When people ask me about Ubuntu, most of them use
WIndows, I won't try to force them to switch over. If they are pleased
with what they've got, let them use it. Besides, they won't call me in
the middle of the night if they have problems with Windows, because
they know that I don't use it. Good for me… :) HOwever, it happens
that I show people what's it all about. Maybe that will make some
people switch, or maybe not. It's up to them…

I like Emacs very much, but if I do simple editing I would probably do
it in Gedit. I use Emacs more for programming stuff. I don't use Vi or
Vim so I don't know if it's good or bad, but Emacs fulfills my needs
of a text editor and more, so I'm not too curious…

Use what you feel like using and be happy! :)
