You can only be judged by the quality of your enemies or some such, it is an old saying i remember hearing.
Windu and Yoda both faced off the most powerful Sith lord??? though they were unable to defeat him they did press him very hard.
Anakin of course killed him whilst injured and dying

Windu defeated Sidious. If it wasn't for Anakin cuting his arm, Sidious would have died by his hand.

I got the impression Sidious enginered that, he wanted Anakin to attack Windu.
One moment he is crying weakness, the next he unleashes force lightning whilst grinning and saying something like absolute power.
He had left himself in positions of weakness before, like where Anakin had his lightsabre drawn on him and Sidious feigned being unharmed and at Anakins mercy.
Sidious was not just powerful, he was devious and fooled the jedi order and republic with ease.

Have you guys even read any of the EU on Luke's story? He defeated the reborn emperor, went toe to toe with Darth Caedus, and defeated what...3-4 Sith "Grand Masters" ?

How is Luke not at least in the running for most powerful jedi ever?

Back to the person who said Sidius planned Anakins stepping in, I think Windu defeated Sidius fair and square. A sith lord would never show fear, regret, or dishonor. I like to play the "what is he actually thinking" game with star wars. Here's my interpretation of Sidius' thoughts before Anakin stepped up. "Oh **** oh **** oh ****, for the love of god do something you punk *** kid"

Windu was by far the most powerful Jedi, Yoda was the man, just didn't have it in him to get that close to taking out a sith lord.

You have to read the books in the expanded universe to understand this. Luke eventually surpasses Yoda, and gains abilities that not only did only certain people have(Like Mace Windu's Shatterpoint), but learns various obscure Force powers from various other non-Jedi practitioners as well.

Both Windu and Yoda used lightsabers, Palpatine on the other hand was a force-user and wasn't very powerful in fencing (probably because lack of training because he didn't fought much himself, but let others do that while he himself was a manipulator). Yoda unarmed actually Palpatine too, behind the scenes, because Palpatine hasn't any lightsaber later in the battle with Yoda and use rare force powers instead. Besides, in AOTC Obi-Wan says ironically to Anakin "If you spent as much time practicing your saber techniques as you did your wit, you'd rival Master Yoda as a swordsman.", with that joke, I think it was declared that Yoda was the most powerful jedi in the order, both in force powers and fencing.

You can't compare Jedi's of different eras, you can only compare Jedis of the same era, fyi Revan, Malak belongs in the old era, a few thousand years before Yoda even existed, so they are infinitely more powerful because it's an era where Force users and practitioners thrive by the thousands. The era of the Skywalkers was an era where force users have virtually been eliminated altogether. Besides that point we are talking about star wars expanded universe lol, it's all fan made fiction, but if you logically want to compare force might, the ancient Jedis are certainly more powerful than ones George Lucas have envisioned. If you want to compare official Star Wars lore, i did say Yoda and Mace Windu.
