I use vi and Eclipse, the former usually for system admin and the  
latter for coding (any language from Assembler to PHP). Eclipse can  
present a reasonably simple face and GUI editors are going to be much  
more familiar than vi keystrokes -- as you say, people get familiar  
with things like Word.

Eclipse also has good VCS integration, if that's a factor.
