Writing or Editing?
Authored by: gidds on Dec 06, '06 12:02:28PM

I voted for 'vi', coz it ought to get more recognition :) But although I use that a lot, I don't tend to do original writing in it; instead, I use it for editing, formatting, and generally hacking around text from elsewhere.

For actual writing, I generally use Apple Mail (for emails, obviously), TextEdit (for almost everything else), and occasionally Firefox (such as this comment, though the lack of spelling and other tools, and in some cases the poor formatting, mean that I'll often write in TextEdit and then paste back into Firefox).

Oh, and for source code, I tend to use vi for shell scripts, Perl, and C, but TextEdit for Java -- though I've recently installed Eclipse and expect to be using that instead.
