    nope, under UNIX/Linux there are (for the most part) text (non-gui) text editors. there are two schools of users. vi (virtually impossible...lol) editor which was the first to emerge on the scene, then Emacs which followed there after. vi is pretty robust but hard to use sometimes. emacs is better (thats my opinion) but both do the same thing. & notepad for all intents and purposed is not even close to vi & emacs, but more along the line of (pine's) pico. vi & emacs both give you text editing and command line interface at the same time. to my knowledge they dont have this for windows (except under cygwin). these pre-date the " Internet ", infact they probably pre-date windows too (just a guess).
