Ok, maybe that is a bit strong, but still... how can you not love Sublime Text?
For those of you who don't already know, Sublime Text is a cross-platform Python-based IDE, that makes editing code as easy and enjoyable as eating cake. It has fantastic features, such as regex searching/selecting, synchronized mutli-line editing, customizable & 3rd party themes, Package Control, and soooo much more.
I personally had only first heard about ST about 3 months ago (Nov of 2012 for readers from the future). Up until then, I had really only used Dreamweaver and on occasion Notepad++. But once I started using it, I simply couldn't stop.
What you may not know
- Sublime Text is under constant development, which means new versions seem to always be coming out
- Sublime Text is free to try, for unlimited period of time. However a license must be purchased for continued use (only $70 USD)
- There are 100's of Packages (aka Plugins) available, for free, and easy installed (via Package Control)
- Currently Sublime Text 3 Beta is available to try for those whom already have a license. Those who don't have a license, can still try Sublime Text 2.
- Sublime Text has plenty of useful hotkeys
In ST I think Git related packages are a must. Seeing the current file
diff in The Gutter and being able to use Git commands from the Command Pallete has made my life much easier.
While everyone has a setup they like, I think a lot of people who use Sublime Text are always on the lookout for new packages to try so...

NOTICE: All of these are can be installed from Package Control
