    vim

    I use TextMate on OS X, but I've heard good things about Scribes from Linux users.

    i heard of textmate in many places as the ultimate tex editor, a fabulous text editor. What the hell does it have for example in respect to kate in kde on linux?

    I have no idea since I don't use Kate, but if you want to learn more about TextMate's features you can watch some screencasts that show it in action. You can also watch the Ruby on Rails screencasts, since they use TextMate in those as well.

    I'm also trying kate (kde text editor) and it is very fast, simple but very useful. It has syntax highlight for ruby .rb files and .rhtml.

    I'm liking TextMate's simplicity over Dreamweaver. Although Dreamweaver is a mammoth program, I only hand code and have no needs for Dreamweaver's other features. There is one thing I would love to see in TextMate, which would make me buy it in an instant. When I'm coding CSS in Dreamweaver, Dreamweaver has an autocomplete feature, which makes coding a lot faster. Does anyone know if there's a way to make TextMate do this?

    The Mac Mini is a desktop.

    I use the Macbook but that's because I like smaller laptops. If you're going for a laptop play around with them all and see which one you like before throwing down a lot of money on a computer.

    Why all the unrelated questions though? Everything I just posted is definitely NOT about Linux text editors

    Emacs or Vim of course. Emacs has better Ruby/Rails support (with rails-mode etc) but Vim has better key bindings.
