Choosing a WYSIWYG module for drupal - call for mutual aid

I have been following up research on choosing a wysiwyg module for drupal. Instead of re-creating the wheel, I am hoping to get some feedback from others who have had experience in this area.

Most of the occupy people seem to use wordpress, but our team working on a site for the next occupy natgat chose to build with drupal. So far we are short-handed on webdevs with deep experience with developing with drupal, hence this outreach for some mutual aid.

I am finding many related mayfirst discussions. I was so happy to see a 6 yo ticket (#770) was reopened by dkg 15 months ago - but it hasn't been updated since. It is the only 'open' ticket i located relative to this topic.

From those pages, saw the link for drupal wysiwyg master menu plugin, from which one can currently choose of 11 options. That one we have installed on the host site we are developing for occupy natgat2014, but none of the 11 choices has been installed as of yet on what will be our stand-alone site:

Some other related discussions from SMO: #770 good start on mf/pl wysiwyg recommendation, idle 15 mo. #6607 CKEditor - themes - PHP #4490 wysiwyg #4407 fckeditor - webform #3898 wysiwyg - overload - anonymous hits/access #3691 wysiwyg - facebook #3540 CKEditor + wysiwyg combo advice/regrets #2733 wysiwyg - no followup #2281 wysiwyg + img_assist module

net search on wysiwyg module comparisons

And BUEditor seems to be a different animal altogether.

Open to all questions, suggestions, opinions and advice.

The editor that I am most familiar with is CKeditor it is what was used on the site when it was up and running. I did not do an extensive research on it, as it was setup prior to my entry of it, but it is one that I typically install.

Using drush you can quickly install the new modules and test them out if that is something you would like to do. Using drush with drupal saves tremendous amount of time with installing modules as you can skip the web interface which takes longer. I hope this helps.
