Hello

I know everyone likes and uses Notepad++ but I tried Sublime Text 2 and wow I felt in love with it :) The out of the box expirence is better than Notepad++ as much of Notepad++'s plugins are already a part of Sublime Text 2. Plus search is A LOT faster....

What source code editor do you use, why and with what language?

Well if you're doing .NET work, then Visual Studio. Especially with Resharper Add-In.

vim. Very powerful and you can do pretty much anything you want with the right plugin.

I was referring to a source code editor not a IDE :) Just in case anyone is confused.

One part of an IDE is a source editor... So why wouldn't an IDE be a valid answer to the question?

Visual Studio 2012 along with a few choice addons (CodeRush, etc) hands down for the various dotNET languages and platforms along with C++ and Python, Notepad++ for most everything else.

The source code portion of a IDE would be. I just saw so many bloated IDEs poping up I was just clearing it up :)

My favorite IDE is VS without a doubt. But it is not my favorite source code editor.

Sublime text 2 with package manager and a few plugins.
Jeffrey Way did a cracking tut on sublime text plugins on nettuts. Really recommend it.
Sublime is so much better with the plugins he recommended, especially zen coding. Ill never go back to writing HTML the way I used to.
