A wide variety of people use text editors for a wide range of purposes. Nevertheless, you must bear in mind that your text-editor will have a huge impact on your productivity, your programming style (syntax, spaces, indenting, comments, processing, etc.), the languages you work on and your workflow. Therefore, it should not be chosen randomly or impulsively. 

In fact, there are several factors you must consider before picking a text editor, from stability to performance, built-in features, footprints, customization, and active community of users.
