I'm looking for a very fast simple basic text editor for graphical desktop environment.
I'm user of Ubuntu (mate) and Mint (cinnamon)
Using Windows 7, the notepad.exe is very lightweight and fast, but all text editors (Pluma, gEdit, Geany...) that I tested on a Linux Window Manager is a little slow and heavy.
I tested Xed(consumes 12mb), Mousepad(consumes 10mb), Tomboy for notes (consumes 24mb), Sublime Text(consumes 70mb), Gedit, Jedit.
(notepad.exe using Wine) but the two together consumes 13mb of memory.
all text editors on terminal have a problem, each bash instance or tab consumes 5mb of memory and more of mate-terminal or gnome-terminal that consumes at least 7mb of memory.
