    MS notepad has improved a bit since Win 3.0 or even 95. For example,
    you can use whatever font you want (only one font per document) for
    display and printing, you aren't limited to 50K characters or
    whatever it was way back when, and you can do a global search and
    replace.

    What I'd like to see is some replacement for write/wordpad - simple
    editing of a number of file formats without the need for bloatware
    like Microsoft Word and without the ability to execute Word
    Basic-based malware/macro virii.

    Write no longer seems to be able to read .doc files, let alone the new
    ..docx format.

    There are a number of freeware Windows versions of Unix editors like
    Vi and Emacs.

    That's html, not htm

    http://home.comcast.net/~omnis1/frees.html

    Some of it consists of warnings about Freeware with secret adware.

    One way to avoid this is to use open source software (source code
    available) like Mozilla software, OpenOffice.org (free office suite),
    Cygwin.com (free Windows ports of Unix/Linux software), et alia.

    It's hard to hide spyware if you give out the source code. That
    doesn't mean everyone who uses Firefox has to read all the thousands
    of lines of C++ source code or even know C++ but it's there if
    you want it.

    You mean the one that says:

    "Page URL Not Found!!
    The requested page does not exist on this server. The URL you
    typed or followed is either outdated or inaccurate."

    Thanks, that was fun.

    People who run web sites where htm is not automatically
    recognized as html and vice versa should be shot in the head,
    brought back to life, tortured for a while, and then thrown in
    boiling oil for a few hours.

    AFAIHBATT, there is a LOT less of that than everyone thinks,
    just like viruses are not nearly the danger everyone thinks they
    are - if only people weren't so stupid and clicked on
    attachments in all their email etc. (And didn't use IE/OE, of
    course.)

    Good point. Never thought of this angle. FWIW, I have DL'd
    several gigabytes of freeware, shareware, and cracked ware, and
    only ONCE did I find a call-home file in one of the packages.
    Amusingly enough (but not surprisingly), that was the ONE time
    the poster assured everyone that it was totally virus/spyware
    free :)

    That Freebie Heaven is a good link, actually. Looks like it may
    have some nice programs. Very comprehensive, too. I will check
    it out.

    Thanks for correcting the Novice.

    Regards
    t.
