I spent way too long looking for a simple Notepad replacement. It seems like that would be easy to find, but most of the other editors really try to cram in too many features, which loads down the program and creates potential for bugs. NoteTab, for instance, is totally inconvenient to use as a Notepad replacement simply because it crams in too much stuff. MetaPad does the job and does it well.
