Also try SciTE (

I discovered it a few months ago, and have been very pleased. It lacks a few nicities (config is pretty much all via config file(s)). It is fast, which is a real plus for me as I have a bad habit of closing a text editor only to discover that I need to edit "one more thing".

I would also recommend jEdit ( It has many more options (via plugins) than SciTE; and a nice Windows right-click menu extension; but is kind of slow to startup (being Java), but pretty snappy once it is loaded.

Both projects are open source, and appear to be under fairly active development.
