Just wish Apple would bring out OSX for the PC!
Now why on earth would you want that?
get rid of Vista its hopeless, as is XP(although the best windows version atm).
Get a good linux distro (preferably a debian based one) and you will never look back and its FREE! also you can make it look 'cool' and 'flash' (or gay as i call it) like vista :
Compiz Fusion Welcome
I recommend Ubuntu for the linux newbies:
Ubuntu Home Page | Ubuntu
As for editors, linux has a whole host of them, i personally use VI, but its kinda complicated for people used to notepad++ etc, there is emacs which is good to but like VI difficult to master.
for simplish editors i recommend Kate:
Kate | Get an Edge in Editing
or there is bluefish, which someone i work with uses and sings its praises but i can't personally understand why:
Bluefish Editor : Home
all can be installed very easily using 'Advanced Package Tool' on a debian distro (like ubuntu, to be entered into a terminal window,):
apt-get install kate
you may need to be root in order to use apt, in ubuntu you use 'sudo' (super user do) as the root password is disabled by defualt in ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install kate
there are more editors but i cant currently remember them off the top of my head.
