Acronyms used:

 L  - Linux W  - Windows M  - Mac C  - Commercial F  - Free CF - Commercial with Free limited edition ?  - To be confirmed

I don't mention basics like syntax highlighting as I expect these by default.


This is a just dry list reflecting your feedback and comments, I am not advocating any of these tools. I will keep updating this list as you keep posting your answers.

PS. Can you help me to add features of the above editors to the list (like auto-complete, debugging, etc.)?
