Smart editor: Emacs
  Not fast, but very smart and have many features for different
  languages. Also have supporting VC (including CVS and RCS)

Mechanic editor: Vim 
  Very fast. When it compiled --with-perl have powerful for perl-developers
  text processing. Have own features. Easy mapping keysequences to actions.
  Good for writing repeated, regex-writable texts.

Most times I use vim, but when I want to nice indenting and 
different transformations and have enough free space
I use Emacs.

With best wishes Nikolay
