AnyEdit (Looks good, if it is ever finished, been in development for many years)

Note that these editors are for text and code, so for editing config files, .bat files, scripts etc. they are great. For specific word processing or full on code development, there are better applications like OpenOffice and some code IDEs. I just want something to replace notepad.exe for quick general purpose editing.
Cool, thanks for that Greg. I'll have to stick Crimson Editor on my USB key. The free part is nice and it looks to be a lot better than EditPad and the like. I'll check out the others too. Yes, UltraEdit is crazy on the features. The new version even has collapasble code sections capability.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.
