GNU Emacs

From the GNU Emacs project page:

GNU Emacs is an extensible, customizable text editor–and more. At its core is an interpreter for Emacs Lisp, a dialect of the Lisp programming language with extensions to support text editing.

Emacs is a great text editor for people who want to be able to customize every single thing about their editor.

I started using Emacs in 2007 after 10 years with vi. It’s the most used application on my computer and certainly the one I spend the most time customizing. The end result is a tool that conforms to the way my mind works instead of the other way around.
