Dont confuse

Comment by ZackGules about gedit Sep 2015

Gedit is not a text editor, but more a IDE. Its extensible for work with source code, but not with text files. For example, its formating is hidden deeply inside (text style, line warp etc). Besides, it now uses GTK3 libraries, which have "own unique style" of GNOME3. If you are not inside GNOME3 or fan of it, you may feel uncomfortable with how it now looks and functions.

gedit is my editor of choice as a web programmer. Since it is completely pluggable the functinality is endless and with the File Browser plugin it can even work someone like an IDE. If you enable the Snippets plugin or create custom snippets items using AutoKey then you can have even more control over your code. Also if you install the Zen Coding plugin then you will wrtie code 5x faster at a minimum.

gedit is fast and powerful in it's own right and then adding zen coding it becomes a top contender for best editor for Gnome Linux

I love gedit. Simple, pluggable, and it doesn't get in the way of my development. If you're having issues with slow load time disable the 'file browser' plugin. In some cases it'll make a huge difference in load time.

Gedit is by NO means an "alternative" to slickedit.
When using slickedit, it doesnt make a difference in speed (at least for searching the file) if the file is
10 MB; 100 MB or 1 GB in size.

Just try opening a flat 200 MB text file with gedit.
