Yes. My recommendation for EditPlus is valid only for 32 bit Windows or
Linux/Wine. But there, nothing compares to it.

When I am using a plain editor for Pascal development, everything comes
down to real customization of syntax hilites and keyboard shortcuts,
powerful search & replace, integrated console window, jumping on the
source line by doubleclick etc. That's where EP shines, and, from my
point of view, no other editor compares.

An IDE is a different category. Lazarus or MSE.

To be honest, I would love it to see just one option, _the_ FreePascal IDE.

With my first 64-bit machine these days, I am going to switch to
Lazarus. Thought, you already did so, years ago? :)
