I'm looking for a fast loading, lightweight, wordpad.exe GUI equivalent for Linux. I use kate or kedit or kwrite at the moment, but those are much slower than wordpad( I use Debian Sarge w/Sid apt-pinning, KDE 3.2 , and 2.6.8-1 kernel).
Also, I have books that are txt files (they're public domain) that I want to read. Does anyone have the most comfortable solution to reading them? e.g. for pdf's I like to full-screen, fit-wide in acrobat reader. I think my only comfort problem with txt files is the, at the very least, seem more jaggy and, in turn, are less comfortable for me.

Thanks all for the reply. For a notepad.exe type program leafpad works great without installing any gnome dependencies gedit or cream would require. I already have been using Acrobat Reader 7 and it's nice.
