Re: nopc -- Proposed Predefines

Hi -

I'd like to chime in with my two cents on the JEdit / no JEdit topic. 

Perhaps I should try again, but when I tried using JEdit about a year ago (with 
LilyPondTool, I think - is JEdit normally used without LilyPondTool?), it took 
so long to load JEdit, that I said, "Forget it - I'm going back to ConTEXT." 
ConTEXT is not perfect, but it works and works quickly for me. Anybody know if 
JEdit's load time has improved any?

Also, I hope the tenor of the discussion stays civil. People's preferences 
differ, often with valid reasons. I don't think any of us want to push (hard, 
anyway) anyone in a particular software direction -- except in the direction of 
LilyPond, of course. I'm on a PC running XP SP3 now, others are on Macs, and 
many seem to be running some version of Linux, so I would assume that not all 
software is useable by all of us. I'm hoping to get my daughter's semi-trashed 
6-year-old laptop soon, reformat, and start learning Linux, so I'll be in a new 
category soon. I do think we all want as many people to be able to use LilyPond 
as painlessly as possible, right?

Thanks for listening, and thanks for all your hard work - everybody!
