KLayout 4.0
HBCD = Hiren's Boot CD

it'a pretty good live cd where the dos interface is basically a huge set of batch scripts unified by a config.sys boot menu

it also has Linux / Windows XP / 7 / 8 interfaces, which work differently
You may or may not be able to recognize where I stole this grid background from.

Huh, sounds cool. EnCryptiX is a lot less serious than that :P

(late replies, yay)

I use Vim, a pretty old and complicated text editor that's quite different from the way you edit in most other text editors, though you can be really fast and efficient with it once you learn how to use it.

Vim uses several different 'modes' when editing text -- by default you're in normal mode where you can enter commands to change the text or move around, like h/j/k/l to move left/down/up/right in the text, i to insert some text o to create a new line. When using a command that inserts text you'll go to insert mode, where the keyboard acts mostly like a regular text editor, and when you're done you can go back to normal mnode to quickly move around in the file, or repeat yor last action, or record a macro to speed up some repetitive task, etc.

Vim is really flexible and can basically be configured to do whatever kind of text editing you want, be it nice support for your favorite programming language, even more commands to jump around in your files or maybe even playing Tetris.

I think this video of a plugin for controlling Vim with your voice is a good example of just how detailed and powerful the different commands in Vim can be (though of course normally you'd be typing a few letters on the keyboard and not talking to it :P )

On Linux, I use Nano, Vim, and Pluma.
On macOS, I use TextWrangler.
On Windows, I use Notepad++.

But my most frequently used text editor by far, would be Nano.

I like using nano or vim (not as familliar with vim though) when doing simple commandline work, but for bigger multi-file projects I often use other things. I like sublimetext3 from what i've used of it but I have yet to buy my own copy for myself (and probably wont because its so damn expensive).

Hacking LM and trying to not suck. Weeeeeeee.
