I use emacs on Linux, which is pretty much OK. Many of our machines (about 300) don't have the proper emacs setup and if I have to use those in a hurry, I'll use pico, because I can't really stomach vi. Big handicap, yes I know.
Most of the time however, I code on Win2000 using Perl Builder from SolutionSoft. I grew up on Turbo Pascal, so I kinda like an IDE, and I like a lot of PerlBuilder's features, such as the ability to step through code, set watches, study the contents of variable by waving the mouse over them and so on. It's nice.
