I've never used BSD, but vim is always a popular choice. It is incredibly powerful and versatile.

I use vim for practically everything, thanks to shix for persuading me a month or so ago.

I wouldn't call it BSD text editor, most editors can by used without trouble on most linux systems as well.
But vim is my fav, although I do alot of teaching with nano. For tutorials, and irl stuff for friends.

Same, I wasn't sure what was the best is though.
