I just made a new software tool called NotPad! It’s like notepad, the tool that comes built into windows, but open source and has slightly less functionality. It’s programmed in python, using the wxpython library. If you’re a “free speech” sort of person, you can grab the source here, but you’ll need to download python and wxpython before you run it. If you’re more of a “free beer” type, you can download a windows binary blob here (Mac and linux downloads coming shortly after you need them). If you have no idea why I’m talking about free speech and free beer, read more about open source software.
NotPad is licensed under the WTFPL, with an added “no warranty” clause.
The current release is Beta 1.0.0
Here’s a screenshot:
