One of the leading text editors for Microsoft Windows is finally available on Linux. UEx (UltraEdit for Linux) has been released for download with packages available for Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE, and Red Hat. Users of other distributions can get it via .tar package with 32 and 64 bit support.
UltraEdit for Linux contains some Linux-specific configurations, such as the ability to choose a console for user tool output, or pick a file browser when browsing project files/folders.
I’m sure a lot of Linux users/programmers who prefer to use UltraEdit are happy about this release as it can now run on both the KDE and GNOME desktops without the need for Wine or any other translation layer. But for those of you who want to switch from using free and open source text editors to UEx, not so fast because UltraEdit for Linux is not available for free. You can only try the application for 30 days, and then you will have to purchase a license if you wish to continue using it beyond the given time.
