Mac OS X wish list

While I’m in the mood to create wish lists, here’s what I want from Mac OS X. Give us a built in text editor that will write plain text. The Text Edit software that comes with OS X is very good, but it only writes rich text files, not plain text. Simple Text has disappeared. This means that there is no way to open a file such as a CSS file or an HTML file in any application provided with OS X. Sheesh! I never thought I’d be longing for Notepad, but here I am longing for Notepad. It is an irritation to be forced to scour the download sites for a Mac OS X compatible plain text editor when something like that should be built in.
