Overall Satisfaction with Notepad++

Notepad++ is one of the first programs I install whenever I am using a new PC. It's incredibly powerful and allows me to create and edit scripts from various languages - currently I've used it with C++, C#, and SQL, though I've dabbled in a few other languages as well. This program handles them all with ease. It is currently being used solely by myself as I handle SQL query creation and it allows me to easily script a query for our company.
  • Text editing
  • Script creation
  • Recognition of multiple programming languages
  • It would be nice to be able to add any new/lesser used languages to the software
  • Has an old-style "feel", like Windows 98
  • Takes a little getting used to if you're not familiar with the software or scripting
  • Free code editor
  • Easy install means more effective use of time
  • Easy to create powerful scripts that would normally cost more money to create via a third party
You can't compete with free software, especially when that free software doesn't come with unnecessary bloatware and is packed with powerful tools. The closest software that I have used that comes close to Notepad++ has a simple SQL code editing tool built into it, but the software is expensive and only really works for SQL. I'm surprised that they haven't started charging for Notepad++ yet.
This is an absolute must have for any IT professional to have in their toolkit, especially if there's a possibility of utilizing programming languages. If you have to create or modify scripts, or even do basic HTML editing, this software is for you. I would think that users outside of IT wouldn't have much of a need for this software, though.
