I've always used vi(m) and never managed to learn emacs, but I agree
about xterm and xcalc.  I do sympathise with OP and have tried to avoid
KDE apps ever since I abandoned KDE in favour of icewm (and latterly
wmaker).  But I have never found anything to match kate.  Nedit Kedit
Gedit Xedit, Nano, don't come near -- though I use whichever of those is
handy in preference when doing simple tasks.  I have started to use vim
and its plugins increasingly recently (and to learn a bit more of it --
I was using only about 10% of its power if that).  

I moved from Kile to Texmaker for the same reason, but in the end there
are some shortcomings in Texmaker and a couple of Really Useful extras
in Kile (especially bracket matching), so I've reverted to Kile too.
Just cannot get away from DCOP...
