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.

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

Text Editor: Sublime Text 2 for PHP, Node, Ruby - Why? Loads of great snippet/addons, Goto anything, Command line, VIM mode, multiple cursors, multi platform, etc.

IDE: Visual Studio 2012 for C#/ASP.NET MVC.

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.

If I'm not using VS, then I'm using either Notepad++ or GEdit if I'm on Linux.

Heh, Notepad++.

I've been testing Sublime Text 2 and I'd definitely say it looks better out of the box (not sure you could even mod Notepad++ to look better) but honestly I feel the syntax highlighting (only judging for html, css, php and javascript) is better in Notepad++ out of the box though judging by the default colour-schemes it's possible I could fix that for Sublime and it's probably just a matter of what I'm used to as well. Still, In the end, there is no way I personally could justify paying $59 for Sublime when there isn't really anything (except looks) that it does better than Notepad++ for me and even if it did it'd be a bit steep for a texteditor.

Every few minutes (30 minutes) it just shows a nag screen. Nothing else.

I know, just like WinZip only has a 30 day trial but can still be used after it. The "license" still says you have to buy for continued use so I'll just go for the free just as good alternative even if I could technically use the paid option without paying :p

You should really try 7-Zip. I was a die-hard WinRAR fan for the last 7 years or so, until it was forced upon me. It's Ultra compression kicks arse!

I recommend anyone that uses Notepad++ (for whatever) to give Sublime Text 2 a try :)

Sublime Text 2 is nice, but I haven't found anything that makes it worth the money for me. Notepad++ does a great job for simple editing and it's free. Visual Studio will always be the king of IDEs though.

I personally use Notepad++ and Eclipse (against my will). Never heard of Sublime, so I'll check that one out. :)

Sublime Text for anything non-Java and I love it! If you thought text editors couldn't be faster, think again.
