It all depends on the purpose you're using it for. I definitely don't use Notepad while programming (I do use it for PHP coding though).
But for some quick plain-text editing, I love its simplicity. There's always WordPad if you want more rich-text features, but I almost never use that.
notepad for me ..php and html most of the time...sometimes i use dreamweaver for that kinda stuff...i use notepad for almost everything that are viewable in it..except for those few web page extentions
BSD's ee [easy editor] is the best CLI editor, I use VIM on linux. Graphical text editor on *nix, I like KWrite the best [syntax highlighting is key, helps you see a missing quote]. I use notepad on XP, I just wish it had a line/column number in the status bar.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
