Free Software - Free code editor

This is probably a wasted blog post since people who would have need of editing software would probably know about all the free Windows software out there but just in case, you do not need to run a linux based box to have its functionality. There are many alternatives out there depending on what you are looking for. If all you want to do is edit a file, I found vim to be very useful. As a fan of vi, it allows you to quickly edit and move around in your code with all of the functionality of your normal notepad edits. Cygwin is great for having the Linux environment in case you want to run shell scripts, ruby, pearl, or expect scripts. If you want to run java eclipse is a great tool for that. There is plenty of resources out there if you have a need.
