I have to admit that I'm a Editor freak!! I keep scourging the net for free, fast and good text editors namely for the Windows Platform. On Linux, Vim just kicks everyone else's butt!!
Recently I came across SciTE which in my opinion is one of the best I have ever used. It's simple and extremely fast. It's also extremely customizable and supports an array of programming languages!!
I think I'm going to stick with this editor for quite some time, hope you guys check it out!
