in Linux-land and I still haven't got used to either Emacs or Vi (Vim, GVim, ad nauseum).
My editor of choice is Nano because it does what it says on the tin with a minimum of BS.
Needing to perform a tutorial before being able to use a program is not my idea of user-friendly.
I'm trying to compose a grocery list, not fly an Airbus...
I'm still looking for a graphical text editor that'll do everything I need.
Geany was ok, at least it let me USE vi without the training wheels, and there's a Windows version too.
Editra is close, but it still doesn't "feel" right...
What I'm REALLY looking for is a Linux equivalent of TextPad.
We LIVE in TextPad at work, and it's pretty awesome.
If there were a free version, I'd recommend that over any other Windows text editor.
I've heard Kate is very close, but it depends on a healthy portion of KDE (which I loathe...) so that's a no-go.
Thanks for starting this topic, Widge.
I think simple text editing is more important a topic than most folks give credit for, and certainly needs more attention paid to it.
