gedit, the default text editor of the GNOME desktop environment, is now available in Windows binary to be run on the Windows operating system. gedit is a simple text editor and vastly inferior, if I may use that word, to powerful Windows text editor like Notepad++ and Notepad2. But Linux users who are used to qedit will find it exciting to be able to use this application when they work on Windows.
