Very stable, easy and clean interface. It's gtk dependance provides an quiet simple way to change it's look completely, by simply changing the theme settings with the corresponding tool (for example, gtk-theme-switch2, for gkt2 in GNU/Linux platform). There aren't so many cons, but to name one, this isn't the fastest FLOSS text editor out there. It could be lightened a bit.

Pros
  • Clean Interface
  • Support for reserved words highlight in many languages
  • Great reliability and stability
  • An enormous growing community providing support.
Cons
  • Not the fastest text editor
  • Same concept as in many other applications (it could be more innovative)
