Wait, what?
nano in textmode, mousepad for GUI. (Although, I have been known to use mcedit and vim in textmode from time to time...)

Notepad++, but I just muck around with HTML and Javascript. Though, given that a teco sounds to me like something you'd eat, I'd say that my opinion isn't one you're looking for.

Notepad, MSWord, Outlook Notes....just anywhere I can cut and paste config fragments between reloads. Needless to say, I don't do a lot of coding.

depends on what...

DX crap usually goes on Visual Studio.
PHP/Perl goes on Notepad++
Torque files usually go under notepad++ or just notepad if I'm especially lazy.

And I'm a Windows fag quiet.

jGrasp and Notepad, I'm still making my way up the programming ladder. (My professors are slow =.=)

You're not alone :p

Vim/gVim more or less across the board now. I keep Notepad++ around for some things on Windows. (Like working with UNC pathnames. On my computer, for some reason, it takes a good 1-2 minutes for Vim to figure out UNCs.)

what about notepad++ makes it so popular?

It has a lot more features than the base notepad. Basically more powerful search, replace, format, conversion and identification abilities. For example, it can recognize and colour-code the text for over 30 programming language scripts. Also supports tabs, autosaves, Macros, and plugins. Awesome little piece of Freeware. :)

so it's sort of like vim except only runs on windows and has 1/10th of the language highlighters and indenters?

Why Notepad++?

Free, Powerful (though not so much as vim or emacs) with a short learning curve.

Notepad++ on Windows, Geany (mp for the commandline) on Linux

yeah but these things are baseline functionality. that's like saying your car has doors and four wheels. anything without these is not worth considering. did people just pick it up, say "whoa this is better than the useless editor that comes with windows", and that was that? :/

it's cause it's popular.. It's got nothing to do with better.
People give it to other people, who in turn give it to other people.

I use notepad.exe in Windows, just 'cause I can access it easily from the "Run" dialog (which, as far as I know, can only run Windows' native programs).

[win+R + "notepad" + enter] is a very familiar action to me.

Note true. It looks through your PATH environment variable. That's why "python," "perl," "gvim" and all the ports of UNIX utilities I have work from Run.

Emacs/Nano under Linux.

Oh, use write.exe instead of notepad.exe, seriously. Notepad is OLD and does creepy stuff with newlines, though, it supports [Ctrl+G] to jump to lines, I don't think write has that. But write has a nice find-replace feature notepad lacks.

It's almost like my most favorite relic of all windows distributions, right through Vista.. the font installer! :D Notepad and the font installer have been pretty much exactly the same since.. probably 3.1.
