Microsoft recently created a new text editor called Bend. This may sound of little importance but take a look at some of these screen shots, the thing looks pretty slick, especially coming from Microsoft. This text editor looks different than other editors with its minimal design and better font rendering. I personally don’t know if I would give up NotePad++ for Bend, but if they added plug-ins for HTML and other languages that I code with I would give it a longer trial.
Give bend a test drive and let me know what you think.

Just to let you know, Bend isn’t created by microsoft, it was written by someone and posted to Codeplex, microsoft’s project hosting service (similar to Sourceforge).

Thanks for the heads up, do you know who makes it then? I would like to make sure my article has the correct facts which I have clearly missed.
