    From Wikipedia:

    A text editor is a type of program used for editing plain text files.

    Text editors are often provided with operating systems and software development packages, and can be used to change, e.g., configuration files, documentation files, programming language source code.

    He's not trashing Word, he's saying it's totally ill-suited for writing code. Also, what does this have to do with Apple / Microsoft debates at all? Both Sublime and Emacs have Windows versions.

    Lighten up, man! This is pretty clearly not a serious review.

      Notepad is the Windows text editor. MS Word is a "word" processor. No wonder the guy considered it Mordor when trying to edit code, he was trying to shave his beard with a chainsaw.

      I kinda got it was not serious. Working as a copywriter I'm kinda sensitive to these kind of dumb articles. You can easily write a very funny article and have it at least contain the correct facts and actually be accurate. You don't see me writing about the best photo editing software and calling iMessage the worst image editor of all time.
