Re: Default != popular
I love notepad for the simple fact it removes text formatting, especially when copying from a web page.
Thinking about it, I like notepad for the same reasons in the article. Its simple, doesnt change, and I know what I can/can't use it for.
Much like Paint. I do almost all my image manipulation in it because it does most of what I need and has done for 10 years. Once in a blue moon I will try to remember how to use GIMP.
