Notepad != Notepad++ Latter is far superior IFF you must use M$.

You're going to shoot yourself (or some other poor sod) in the foot using Wordpad. Especially if you edit any ascii src, config, etc..

Notepad++ is really nice, free text editor if you're forced to use Winwoes. That said, were I in such a position and not wanting to battle Emacs on M$, I think I'd pony up for a Sublime license.

VIM! Period, full stop (or in this case, an exclamation mark).

I did not know there is a GUI frontend for VIM, I voted/use Pluma because it's a great fork of gedit, it actually works, looks and feels 100% better than gedit in Debian 7.x Xfce.
