  Is Linux Annoying?

Why can't Linux have programs like notepad and wordpad? Even the fastest basic editor I can find is much slower to load than notepad.


Also, as an ex-windows user, I want something easy to load RTF files - without having to use the bigger & slower word processors.

    RTF-

    Abiword.

    If that doesn't load fast enough for you, you're just hard to please.

    To open RTF, you may like KWord or Abiword.
