I use "ne" which luckily is part of the debian package repo. Great for work
in console.

For the GUI ... well we stayed with KDE3 on purpose - kate is great.

I had same experience with GTK gedit & friends 14y ago ... since then I
don't want to hear about gnome or whatever alike ... but well, there are
allways exceptions - like gimp.
