I think that John ought to use kedit. kwrite (part of kate) is slightly more
bloated (just slightly). As Bailo uses KDE (from the sound of it; he uses
Gwenview), GNOME editors would probably be irrelevant.
May I add that lightwight Linux editors are by far superior to Wordpad and
Notepad? Colleagues of mine use these to edit LaTeX and I cannot begin to
describe how many difficulties they have. Moreover, flukes such as losing
work are enough to drive them away, or just recoil in disgust. One of them
had a Ubuntu CD on his desk a few months back. I think he is still afraid
because of all the FUD.

There are also many other goodies from Image Magick. You want a widget-free
slideshow of your images?
