Tabbed text editor

Doesn anyone know of a text editor with tabs (instead of opening every document in a new window), similar to Notetab Pro for Windoze? At the moment I'm using Quanta with most of the toolbars stripped away, but it's not a perfect solution.

Well, you could use kate. its not tabbed, but it gives you a list of currently opened files on the left hand side.

gedit as the previous poster pointed out supports tabs and is a fine editor when in the gui. but it requires GTK+ and GNOME libraries. So if you do not have those you won't be able to run it.

I agree, kate is a great little editor. With the side panel, there is little need for tabs. And, it is in the Slack 9 install.
