What is your favorite text editor for Linux?
I just switched from Windows using notepad++, but besides it not being available I wanna try something new.

    VS code is pretty sick, has a massive number of plugins for syntax highlighting etc available, as well as theme options to make it look exactly how you want. And it's cross platform.

    @pollux what about echoing followed by piping to cat > ?

    @gitlog why would you do that? Just compiling echo directly is my best option

    @zlice got me thinking, if you're interested some friends of mine are developping a plugin for libreoffice that adds latex formatting. You can have the same visual styles without the hassle of coding

    Vim here but I'm considering to move to Neovim instead. Reason being that Vim is lightning fast and also works on remote servers.. but I've heard that Vim has some really terrible codebase behind it, which Neovim apparently solved.
    Well I wouldn't recommend it if you're a developer, at least not for that server reason.. don't edit shit on the prod server, understand?! But for sysadmins it's useful when you have to edit config files on the server to set up some new service or modify an existing one.
