Windows console applications. Text editors
Initially, all text editors did not have a graphical interface. And work with text almost from the outset was one of the main types of user activity on computer. With the invention and spread of low-level and especially high-level programming languages, text editor has become an important working tool of professionals. Then, other users had to use text editors for their daily tasks. So by the time the programs with GUI started to be widespread, the concept of text editor was already well developed, there were mature, well-designed and implemented specimens of applications for text editing without graphical user interface. So the text-based versions coexisted with GUI-based ones for very long and still graphical user interface programs have not replaced the console / text-based applications.
While the average user is not aware of their existence, having no idea about the power of vim or emacs and often no knowledge even of MS-DOS Editor, built in all the 32-bit versions of Windows, none the less, console text editors continue to exist and be developed. As it is the case with the text web browsers, the main line of text-based text editors development is in Linux and other *nix systems world. But there are several interesting applications under Windows as well.
