vi/vim/vime is standard on every linux distro, is tiny, massively powerfull, and requires almost no resources to run.

I use vim for quick and dirty shit.
If I need to edit a config, quickly make a file or ssh into a server and edit something, I can just whip open vim in under a second.

I use atom for uni projects for building things with multiple files.
