Can't say that I've noticed that Vim slowdown you speak of, but I don't 
tend to do a whole lot of soft-wrapping myself (it bugs me for some 
reason... even if it is more portable).

Depends on my task.  For *TeXing, I'm usually working in iTeXMac, just for 
the ease of typesetting, bibtexing, etc..  For programming, I used to be a 
Vim guy (still am, I guess), but TextMate is really coming on strong for 
me.  In just version 1.0.1b8, it's already made BBEdit look like a clunky 
old child's toy in my eyes -- TM seems so much more flexible and powerful. 
And I used to do my web-monkeying in Taco Edit, but I might move that over 
to TextMate as well (haven't tried it with HTML, etc. yet).

And of course, I still use pico for tiny little jobs.

Aren't we all?
