The quest for a great text editor: A brief intro to Notepad++

Question “Vim or GNU Emacs?” 
From those my answer is Emacs.

But more and more I use other editors. One of my favourites on Windows is Notepad++. Notepad++ is easy to install, licensed under the GNU Public License (GPL), and the source is available on GitHub

If you’re comfortable with Windows Notepad or WordPad, the Notepad++ interface will be very comfortable to you also. 

Notepad++ has support for 50 programming languages are built right in: syntax highlighting, document maps, collapsible functions, autocomplete, and much more.

    Getting started with the Notepadqq Linux text editor

    Learn about Notepadqq, a Linux text editor that mimics Notepad++.

    One of the applications I always installed was Notepad++

    To be honest, I’ve wanted a version of Notepad++ for Linux for a while now. Someone made my wish come true in the shape of Notepadqq. Although it’s billed as “a text editor for developers,” it’s not a bad tool for writers or anyone else, either.
