    I have used JED a lot in the past as a Emacs clone with a small footprint, good to see it in your article.
    I now use jEdit http://jedit.org/ most of the time, cross platform and Open Source.

    I’ve been favouring the Qt based Eric for the last few months though it’s primarily focused on python there is alot of languages it handles well. You also missed the big new open source editor of the year atom
