mg is the best!

Emacs! Unless it doesn't count because I use evil-mode, then my favourite is probably vim.

Emacs, the most customizable editor out there. And the one that RMS uses! (That counts for something, right?) Pico and vim are ok/great for desperate situations, such as a Arch install or editing your .Xresources before your first boot in Debian.

I agree with you on that. People always laugh at me for using nano a lot, but it's super quick and in almost every package repository.

I'm using vim right now, still learning it so I don't use any plugins.

Nearly always vi at cli, unless I'm doing more than just an edit, then it's mc, my main file manager, (although I sometimes use vifm).
(Under GUI it's usually whatever is installed, or vi.)

Do you do some programming from time to time?

for years i was a plain text editor kind of guy. then i went thought that ide phase. eventually i found out about this beta editor called sublime text. it was my go to for years. recently i've noticed many of it's short comings. one day i "woke up" and realized that 99% of what i do on a computer is in the terminal. some of it on my own box some of it on remote ones and that i should start using a terminal based editor. i "saw the light" and started using vi/vim. last week i officially uninstalled sublime from my systems. feels good
