    Hilarious. Notepad++. Compared to EmEditor Professional.

    That person must not know that Notepad++ is strictly 32-bit. They must also not have tried it with 100-MB+ files, or else they'd know that EmEditor is drastically faster.

    I tested search/replace operations under Windows 8.1 on a 146-MB file with EmEditor (64-bit) and Notepad++. The repeatable results: What EmEditor was able to do in 4 seconds or less, Notepad++ took over 6 MINUTES to do!

    But hey, it's free, so let's rate it highly, right?

    Calling Notepad++ an "alternative" to EmEditor Professional is like calling a bucket an alternative to a firehose.

    And BTW, if paying for an application is the biggest mistake you've ever made, you're doing pretty well. Although I have to think that's hyperbole.

    Maybe expensive for someone but certainly not garbage, actually imho best editor. Notepad++ or Akelpad are great free alternatives.
