As always, there is lots of choice in linux, though usually you have to make 
choices about features, too.  The really good thing about Textpad is that it 
had so many useful features, yet it was simple to learn.  I guess the UI was 
just very well designed.  

I suspect Uno will have to look again at his list of requirements and put them 
in order of importance.  If he does that it may be possible to debate the 
pros and cons of each editor against the list.
