IDM UltraEdit V14.00a Plus 1 Incl. Keymaker-CORE Free Full Version
I'm going to have to agree with Scatmanjohn Dingledoo on this one. UE does take a couple of seconds to start up but certainly not ten, and I've got a 2.1ghz dualcore. Chances are the slow startup is a viruschecker, malwarechecker or maybe a work drive located on a network share. UE's definitely the best and most full-featured editor out there but it is starting to get a little bloated. Free stuff? I'd probably go for either Notepad2 with codefolding, or else PSPAD. Notepad++ is off my radar on principle, until the author figures out that it's a bug to have http:// links clickable but https:// ones not (and god I hope Mr Caleval shows up here with his, quote, 'masturbatory' comments - had a great laugh at the one he posted on Notepad++ recently).Another nice editor to try, which starts up pretty much instantaneously: Editplus (www.editplus.com). Based purely on two things: startup time, and linespacing being a little tighter than other editors, that's the one I'm using at the moment. At least until the trial period runs out..
