I’ve been using NEdit for a while – it’s one of the best, easiest to use editors available on Unix. I just noticed today that it’s been GPL’d which is very good news – hopefully we’ll see it become more widely adopted and maybe even included in some of the standard Linux distributions. Now, if someone will just port it to GTK and finally free it up from the ugly Motif/Lesstif look! I downloaded the latest beta but it looks like it has a ways to go, the make bombed off on the first source file. In the meantime, though, you can always download a static binary of the latest stable build.
