I used gedit and Windows' Notepad for a long time until I stumbled across SciTE.

I now use SciTE on CentOS 5, CentOS 7, and Windows because it's programmable and cross-platform.  I have never actually used it on CentOS 6, though.  It doesn't appear to support Markdown out of the box, either, but I think it's possible to add your own language files.

The last couple versions won't compile on CentOS 5, but I wasn't affected by any of the bugs they fixed and I'm migrating to 7 anyway.
