What's the lightest weight mouse-based text editor on Linux? Something that doesn't use a big GUI framework. In other words, what is comparable to notepad.exe? (and don't say gedit, because that doesn't open nearly as fast; not for me anyway).

Somewhat related: a lot of people probably use google docs just because it syncs across devices. There should be a notepad.exe online equivalent that isn't ultra heavy like docs is. I personally don't have a huge need, so I'm more thinking about how to improve the lives of people who care very little about tech and have no problem using software from google.

@sjb interesting, thanks for sharing. Not quite what I had in mind. I'm thinking especially of a self-hostable thing I could run for friends and family.
