Favorite Notepad Replacements…

I’m looking for a notepad replacement for my new Vista laptop. I’ve used them all. I’m wondering what others like and why. Please provide feedback. 🙂

The notepad replacements I’ve used are:

I’m normally very opinionated about things. The fact that I haven’t picked one simple text editor and “claimed” it bothers me. Help me get a strong opinion for a good notepad replacement.

Just in case you’re wondering how I feel about other tools.

  • Vim over emacs
  • Eclipse over IntelliJ
  • Groovy over Ruby
  • Bud Light over Miller
  • and the list goes on and on….

I pretty much pick a stance or favorite with everything.
