    I was a KDE 3.5 user, and Plasma 5 has better usability than the old KDE 3.5

    That is exactly what they are, just instead of loading Kate to run simple mode, you run kwrite.

    Can you actually read? "Oh, wait, most of them do not work at all in the taskbar (look atrocious and are not customizable at all)."

    This is cool. I can actually use Wayland for more than 15 min now without plasma crashing down on me.

    While Kwrite is more sophisticated than other basic text editors, it still have a long way to be at the same level of Kate. For example, plugins. The one I love the most is the built in terminal. In my use, it is great for executing terminal commands from "how-to" texts.
    Love the built in Konsole. Write C/C++ program. Type gcc or g++ compile then ./a.out, run the program, rinse wash repeat. Great development environment.

    Everyone else, definitely not.

    And that tech savvy is probably <1% of the population. None of my non tech savvy friends (and even some tech savvy ones) that run windows have even heard of notepad++.
    I'd be surprised if someone moderately tech savvy hasn't heard of it due to how often I see it mentioned in tutorials. Especially in tutorials before 2018 due to the Notepad line break crap. It's amazing how many things that broke. But, IMHO, Notepad++ could be replaced with any "better" text editor in regards to not tech savvy people people hearing about it or using it. I just used it because it's the one I learned about first.

    Probably true, but in the past I installed a lot of (cough) pirated (cough) windows versions and quite a few of them came bundled with Notepad++. I just didn't like it because by default it has a too small font (and I use QtCreator anyway).
    I don't like the default setup either. FWIW, I tweak the default Kate setup because it's too small on my screen. With my setup 200% scaling is a hair too small and 225% a hair too big so I go with 200% and bump up the fonts a point or three depending on context...Windows is the opposite -- 225% and I lower/raise fonts as necessary. There's just something about Kate that, for me, does just about everything I need to do in a general purpose text editor. Anyone who has had to open a bashrc, something under /etc, an INI or CFG, a PKGBUILD, or edited anything that wasn't a TXT file really appreciates all the extra features found in Kate, ++, and other more advanced editors. For actual programming I'd pick a programming editor like QtCreator or PyCharm or your favorite IDE and tailor that to my project's needs.
