    Sometimes I wonder why there is such huge number of text editors, when the functionality that most of them offer is almost identical!

    Could it be developers practicing regular expressions?

    Seriously? I always wonder how many coders who state Notepad as their favorite editor can work in such a limited, productivity-reducing editor... there's so many better tools out there, you should try Notepad++, PSPad or one of the many other free alternatives.

    If you don't need syntax highlighting, then I don't see any reason why Notepad should work just fine.

    I didn't say Notepad doesn't work -- I said that it is extremely limited in basic productivity-enhancing functionality. There's a lack of syntax highlighting, like you mentioned, but also other limited or absent basic functionality: working in multiple files, auto indent, regex support in find and replace, intelligent undo/redo.

    Ofcourse more advanced features like split-screen editing, advanced selection/manipulation of words and lines, bookmarks/breakpoints, auto completion, code formatting, folding, line numbers, etc. are also lacking.

    I'm just wondering what exactly the reason is why some coders like to stick to it, no offense to those who do.

    I rarely feel a need for syntax highlighting. Not that I've never missed a semicolon, not I can always find the error without any difficulties. Working in multiple files is handled by opening multiple Notepad windows. Auto indentation is something I don't particularly like. Regex search-replace would be nice, but I rarely need it. Undo/redo is handled by making backups every not and then.

    What I really like that that there is almost no chrome. This means that I can for example re-size the window to fit the chrome of another window, thus being able to write in the Notepad window while viewing another, maximised window. This also enables me to make by own split windows - I would be able to fit about 20 Notepad windows on my screen, while still being able to see several lines of code in each window.

    And also it adds a BOM when saving as UTF-8. So it is only useful for saving ANSI files, whitch can be accepteble if you stick to the letters supported. My conclusion is that only files created with Ms Notepad is safe to edit in it. No offence, but I believe even Windows Wordpad has been a much better option for programming ever since Windows95 and still is. (I see Ms Notepad for programming as the equivalent to Ms Paint for graphics. )

    On Mac: TextMate for everything except CSSEdit for CSS.

    When on Windows, it's all Notepad++ all the time.

    I'll occasionally crack open DreamWeaver for the multi-file/folder search functionality and its ability to clean up MS Word markup (thankfully haven't had to do that in a long time)

    (in my opinion, TextMate is the closest Mac equivalent to Notepad++)

    I have always used Dreamweaver. I did try others, but within a couple of days I always found myself wanting to go back to Dreamweaver.

    I switch between vi and gEdit (Gnome's default editor). Both have more functionality than I even use. I keep ditching vi when working with browsers because switching from terminal to GUI for testing sucked (I could have dl'd gVim but oh well, I didn't), but for perl I'm doing it all in vi (vim).

    I usually have several little windows open, a few from GIMP and gEdit (doesn't let you make separate windows but always tabs them) and my file folders, both local and server.

    I've never worked with other editors, other than Notepad long ago when I had to work on a Windows machine.

    It is all about Dreamweaver for me, mixed in with some CuteHTML.

    "Notepad adds a BOM when saving as UTF-8"
    Really? That's good to know. I was just about to try changing my character encoding from charset=ISO-8859-1 to charset=utf-8. I use Notepad, so it sounds like you saved me some trouble. Thanks! (Upon further reading it sounds like the issue is whether or not the editor can save without the BOM. Whatever the specific technical reasons are, the bottom line is it doesn't sound worth it for me to switch from 8859-1 to utf-8. Good; one less thing to do.)

    I use Notepad.
    I tried UltraEdit once because it was recommended by some highly respected developers and I liked it, especially the ability to search-replace multiple files at once. But it was a free trial version that ran out after a month and I never got around to buying it. The price is reasonable - about $30. I should break down and buy it one of these days. It would be worth it even if only to avoid dealing with those little squares that come in unzipped CMSs like Wordpress .
