I want to ask you: what is your favorite text edition software?

I prefer Libre Office, with Writer, to create notes or longer texts. I also like Focus Writer, because it can check spelling when you write in English or Polish.

I downloaded office 2013 64bit but I found that it is 32 bit. How can I make sure the installation is 64 bit as I have Win 8 64 bit. Thank you

Note pad, its very good. Kind of like keeping a note book or a diary or a journal. It comes in handy, too. It's the best by far in my own opinion, not to mention you could use it as a multi-tool purpose.

I'm using Libre office, however I find it quite slow. There's free SoftOffice (Google for freeoffice) but my wife says it crashes in some documents :(

I am using Open Office, but sometimes Windows integrated Notepad is enough for work, depends on task.

It depends on what you will be doing with a text editor. If you're working with coding software or websites, I would suggest Notepad++. If you're writing papers, articles etc. Libre Office or MS Word would be better.

I have Notepad++ but I also use PSPad.

On Office suites I still have Office 2007. I also have Kingsoft Office Pro 2013 but rarely use it.
