Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, CutePad is a text editor for Linux and Windows. It is an open-source mix between a text editor and a word processor, having support for images, links, hyperlinks, tables (unlike Notepad). Being created in Qt, it has an intuitive and colored interface, created to integrate good with Windows 8.1. The latest version available is CutePad 0.1.
