Metapad turns 10 and goes Open Source

Ten years after it’s first release, the feather-weight text editor metapad, a fantastic alternative to Microsoft’s Notepad has been freed, its source code is now freely available — it is now Open Source.

The light, fast, plenty-feature (w.r.t to Notepad), Windows-only ( 9x/NT/XP/Vista) text editor has for long proven to be more than a valid substitute to Notepad, thus has gained popularity amongst geeks and tech-blogs. Kudos Alexander Daveson – – the author.
What next: It’s time to go portable.

    @Nina: the bottom-line is Notepad++ is portable, Metapad is not
