Github last week, finally released the Windows version of Atom, I am always looking for new text editor. I have been using Notepad++ for a while, but I have been looking for something with a simple interface. So when Atom came out months ago, I was very interested in the program. But at the time it was only Mac and Linux compatible, which sucked but what can you do, the software is free and it is just a text editor.
So I moved along and let it be, I know I could have just installed it on my Linux laptop, but that isn’t my daily driver. My Windows 7 box is my main PC, while my Linux box is a server and I use SSH and command line to run that. So you can’t miss something you haven’t used.
Here I am today, I am using Atom to write this post, and I am using markdown code to format it. An I have to say, I really like it. But I can’t really give an review of it just yet. I need about a month using the software before I can be objective about me, replacing Notepad++. So that is what I will do, the next month I will be using Atom exclusively and I will take notes about what I like and what I hate.
But so far, I’m impressed that it has markdown support, right off the bat. A lot of text editor don’t. With Atom including it a 0.115.0 release makes me happy.
