planet13 - I included ALL windows notepads in that statement. I use a couple of versions on a windows server but prefer textpad (a very old version: newer ones are bloated). I find kate better that any notepad or even the version of textpad I run.
I bow to the other posters' comments on wine: I have little actual experience with it: I try to be a linux "purist" as far as possible. :)
graeme - I am sort of forced to use gedit/pluma in some circumstances and do not get on well with it. Probably just me but I need more features than gedit/pluma seem to have. :)
My brother invested in cross-over but it seemed to me more or less wine with paid-for support. Am I wrong in that?
