I use SciTE. Padre uses the same text editing widget (Scintilla) as SciTE, but while Padre is a full IDE, SciTE is just a text editor.
I do like Padre, but (on this machine at least) its start up time is a little too long for my liking. SciTE starts in a fraction of a second.
I've previously posted My Perl Module Toolchain.
