Haha, don't you pretend you don't know what I mean....:-)

On the Windoze box sitting on my desktop (no, I don't get to choose
that one... It is compensated by being flanked by 7 linux/unix boxes,
with more just a PuTTY/VNC away...) I of course have both Vim and
Emacs. Wouldn't survive without them!
As usual when it comes to editors... it is what you're used/whatever
works for you ... that matters:-).
And as said, you know full well that some will use the useless Notepad
or similar idiotic app... that will insert gratuitous malformed line
