A program that knows it's limits (56 Kb files), is frugal on features and resources, and is elegant in it's simplicity: Microsoft's Notepad.
Don't get me wrong. I love Photoshop as much as the next person, but Notepad has never crashed on me.
Seeing as this was linked by nick, and now we have replies, i'd just like to point out that since windows 2000 - there has been no file size limit.
And it still has not crashed on me - definatly best software ever
hi,i am looking forward to oneNote. but there is a better improvement to Notepad and that is http://www.liquidninja.com/metapad/ it has awesome features and i recommend thatyou also try it out..
Notepad -> win2k/xp has impreoved a lot but while cut/copy/paste and alt+tab, it loses the place of the cursor and the area that was cut from. and basically the 9.x version doesn't have any good stuff apart from not hanging and being a small program. <56kb file accepted too. :)
I agree. Notepad is a wonderful tool for jotting down anything. I always have about four text files on the Desktop with stuff I need to do, etc.
Sometimes it seems Notepad can go wierd when I turn Word Wrap on, and enlarge the window (all the lines stay the same length). Maybe its just me...
hi,try cutting (ctrlx) some text then press alttab. and then go back to notepad and press ctrl z. the text position changes. also only one undo allowed.
metapad has 8-16. :)
My system was running fine as usual when... I went to save a file from notepad, only for it to <i>freeze up</i>. Don't believe me? See this:<p><img src="http://www.whitelands.com/nick/notepad_crash.gif" width="354" height="250" />
