Sometimes too much of a good thing in free software can create bad impressions. For instance, some of the free stuff so easily available in Linux distro package managers is so archaic that newcomers to the OS might understandably shriek in horror. Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely am a big fan of FOSS applications. Why else do I write this weekly column? I am always on the lookout for simple, no-nonsense text editors. That is why I was excited in finding an app called AEE, for Advanced Easy Editor. Alas, my excitement quickly deserted me when I opened AEE for the first time.
