gedit text editor now available on Windows

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.
