      Me too.

      I use vim for almost anything - including writing in forms on the web (via
      the firefox plugin ItsAllText). I write books, esseys, articles and all my
      e-mail in vim (I use Mutt as the mail client). I am almost twice as
      effective in handling e-mail than most people I know with the mutt/vim
      combo.

        gedit has a vi plugin also
        as does netbeans and eclipse (although the eclipse one may not be free
