On Linux, I like KDE 4's Kate (the so-called "KDE Advanced Text Editor"):


It's not perfect and I think it may also sometimes not scale very well to 
large documents (as opposed to gvim which handles them much better). It also 
seems much less capable than vim/gvim, though I admit I didn't take the time 
to learn it properly, possibly out of lack of motivation (because I'm usually 
using gvim). 

Note that I'm not sure KDE 4 apps are very stable on Windows, yet, but you can 
always try using it under a virtual machine (VirtualBox, VMware, etc.) , using 
it using remote X or rdesktop, etc. You didn't say which operating system you 
are working on, and which editors you have tried so far.
