Notepad Equivalent

hi, im trying to find a very light "notes to go" for Zorin or any Ubuntu that equivalent to Notepad in Windows. what i mean is like click then -zap!- open already. so im not going to wait for like 15 sec to open LibreOffice or OnlyOffice.... any input appreciated.

ps. and where can i download it? is it from Zorin Software app?


You can try gnote

sudo apt install gnote

Isn't there a simple text editor installed by default? Or, if you're looking for something to sync between devices you can download simplenote ( or install it using the Zorin software app.
