Since Microsoft is listening to feedbacks I decided to try to contribute with some mockups. I hope that it will come to their attention :) (Smile)

Inspired by your concept, and the slight discomfort in still typing "Notepad" here in Windows 10, and also as a first lesson in designing the new Windows 10 Universal Apps, I did a fully functional test app. Here's "Notes". It's not done yet. For a first version, I at the very least want to have search *and replace* done too, as well as managing word wrapping and going to specfic row numbers. I plan to exploit the .NET regular expression support in finding text too. Things like these comes for free anyway as they're part of the framework. :) I'll easily get dark theme support too since it's part of the Universal App API. Debating over implementing syntax highlighting though... Perhaps if there's a good open source .NET library for this as it'll be time consuming to reinvent the wheel. :)

I find it hard to believe Microsoft hasn't actually done a .NET based Notepad application with the minimalist spirit preserved thanks to strongly selective features, but still lifted to at least modern features.

Anyway, thanks for the mockups, they aligned so well with my vision, only getting them down "on paper" so I could focus better on the development!

Well, that's interesting! I don't know if I'll make a design for that.
The new Office apps on Windows 10 look really good.
Maybe I may just add a few small edits :)

I'm sure you can get it done way better
