    "As a super nerdy programmer, I typically am always looking for better ways to code! This Sublime Text editor has given me this opportunity to code a bit easier and more cleanly because of its editing features. Another great feature of this program is that the developers continually upload fixes and updates to help make this platform even easier to use! If you code, try this out today!"

    "I'm sure everyone who has used a computer has used the old Notepad a time or two. Notepad++ takes the Notepad experience to a new level. It adds more features for the advanced user. It has a WYSIWYG interface that makes it easy for printing. I use it a lot and have found the zoom in and out tool very helpful."

    "I like that Vim is free to use and open source. It's also extremely customizable as far as text editors go. It initially seemed like it was going to be very difficult to figure out how to learn, but once I got the hang out of it, it has been a very useful and powerful tool. Also, you may as well learn to use it, because it's everywhere - almost every server/linux machine has a version of Vim."
