How could y'all not mention Notepad Minus?
« on: December 19, 2007, 07:59:03 PM »
   1. At only 12,228 bytes, I doubt there's a smaller text editor out there.
   2. Not only is it small, it also blows the others away in terms of start up speed.
   3. Absitively, posolutely not bloatware!
   4. Doesn't require installation.

Notepad Minus description
Notepad Minus - the only text editor that has less functions than the original NOTEPAD.EXE that comes with Windows
Notepad Minus is a program designed to be the only text editor that has less functions than the original NOTEPAD.EXE that comes with Windows.

It can't even save the text you wrote.
:huh:

But it is small and does not require any installation  ;D ;D

TheGun sucks, though (and it's compressed, and crashes on XP64 - dunno if because of DEP or whatever).

What's the obsession with size anyway? I can barely tell the difference in launch speed between Notepad++ and Microsoft notepad (and forum regulars will know that this is a thing I bitch/nitpick about to great lengths), and Notepad++ is a pretty full-featured editor...

TheGun sucks


Well, really.

It's nothing but a simple wrapper around RichEdit, and has sentences like "TheGun has continued to improve and adapt to undocumented changes in later versions of Windows." - which only really means that hutch can't write code that runs flawlessly on all windows versions :)

6kb for a simple (buggy!) RichEdit wrapper that is exe-packed - woo hoo, big deal.
