Text editors are wonderful all-purpose tools to have on your system for taking notes and more. This week we want to know which text editor you use.


While working or browsing we usually have notes of some kind that we need to save for later such as an address or that perfect bit of code. For most people a simple text editor gets the job done nicely, but others need something a bit more powerful for their work. It all depends on your individual activities and needs when using a computer.

Each operating system will have some kind of basic text editor installed with it. Do you only use the basic text editor that came with your system or install others that are focused on programming and/or have extra features? Perhaps you install more powerful text editors to use alongside the basic text editor that came with your system. Let us know in the comments!
