    I'm watching a tutorial on something, and the guy uses TextEdit. What's the equivalent on a PC, notepad? Thanks.

    Notepad is not the equivalent; WordPad is. TextEdit, like WordPad, has support for Rich Text formatting and is a relatively poor choice for editing plain text.

    But yes, use NotePad++ or Sublime 2 instead. Both are excellent editors.

    I would download SublimeText. It's very simple, but gives you all the advanced capabilities of better text editors. Also, it's free.

    Notepad is fine. TextEdit is just for writing and coding really.
