Buggy, slow, bloated cr@p
Reviewing 17.20.0 (Sep 4, 2011)
@HeilNizar: There are many editors out there much better than the NotePad++ though UltraEdit is definitely not one of them.
UE not only is bloated, unreliable, slow and buggy but also suffers from a number of very serious encoding issues especially when using Unicode / UTF8. I've lost days of work in the past due to all these issues.
On the contrary, editors with full Uniscribe support like EmEditor and EditPlus as well as a few others like HippoEdit or AkelPad work great with Unicode, are light in resource usage and disk footprint and perform faster and much more stable than this junk.

Do some people still use anything other than Notepad++?!!!

1. Too big;
2. Too bloaty; and
3. Too expensive.
Try something Like:
1. EditPlus (http://www.editplus.com/index.html) or
2. TwistPad (http://www.carthagosoft.net/)
Both are full featured, light load on your system and relatively cheap.

UltraEdit used to be my favorite programmers editor for years; but not any more. I cannot stand any more the bloat, the slowness and all those silly bugs.
Eaves I have to agree with you. I'm still using 11.20b and it's fast! The search option to list lines containing text which opens a separate window is one of my favorite features! But seriously, ten seconds to load on a 3GHz machine?!?
Is this thing written in Java?
