Is GPL and Windows Native. It even runs well on wine, except for one major bug, if a file it has open changes on the disk it freezes and needs to be killed with kill.


On Linux Gedit is actually pretty good, Kate is OK. Of course there’s Notepad++. If you happen to be editing Perl scripts I recommend Padre, which is unfortunately still buggy.

I just watched a video wherein someone used TextMate to edit a handful of files.
I {heart} tabbed thingys, now I want one too. (except for the Mac part :)
What do you recommend for editing multiple files at once (and does it have a windows port).

(any mention of vi, vim, emacs, or anything eclipse-based will be cheerfully ignored.
 I thank you for your understanding).
