Features, Office Periodically, there's a review of text editors for a particular platform. Linuxlinks' latest post is pretty thorough though, covering 21 different Linux/Unix text editors. "In many users' eyes, a text editor should be lean and mean, fast to start up and shut down, without fancy splash screens or a graphical user interface. The choice of editor has long stirred up strong emotions. [...] To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 21 high quality Linux text editors. There's a mix of graphical and console based applications included.

I don't think it's all that suprising to not include NEdit, since the last NEdit release came in 2004 and it still uses Motif toolkit.
So since NEdit hasn't got any release presscoverage for 4 years and uses a, in comparison to others, outdated toolkit, I'd be suprised if the author had even heard of NEdit ;)

But NEdit should be on the list, great as it certainly is.

btw, he does include nano and specifies that nano is a clone of PICO
