[Mono-list] Editor frustration.

When I have the text file on my local box (which is always Windows, I still
don't believe in Linux on the desktop, although I am really eyeing Mac OS
X... too bad it doesn't run on Intel...), I just use Visual Studio :-).  At
this point the fact that there's an integrated compiler, integrated
debugger... C# code actually gets parsed on the fly so obviously bad code
gets the little colored squiggly-underline, the same thing Word uses to
alert of spelling/grammar errors.  I have yet to find a better editor
really; although, it is becoming less and less usable as a universal text
editor as it gains weight and its interface attempts to better integrate
project management, hehe.

Especially if you are doing development in C#, I would highly recommend it.
I'll take a look at that editor, although I hardly ever do file-editing
tasks that don't involve some aspect of a development environment anymore.
Oh, and I got a few people who wanted me to find that vim syntax script, so
I will dig it up tonight (along the with the name of the original author so
we can credit people appropriately).
