    Notepad has gotten actively worse over the years. Back in the anals of Microsoft's history, Notepad used to display the current line and column. They got rid of that. Presumably because it made notepad too useful (especially when writing/debugging code) compared to their premium products.

    >> Not an awful feature, but not something that should be added to a production release.
    This seems to be the highest standard that Microsoft operate at. Most other changes they make are worse.

    >> I can't even remember the last time I wanted to copy text with "formatting".
    This. totally.

    >> I hate this planet.
    No, this planet also contains Linux. You need to instead hate the actual cause of your pain. Microsoft.
