I know this topic is old, but I want to add my point of view:
I use text editors not only for sophisticated stuff like programming, but also
for things like quick notes and quick text changes, that wouldn't work within
other programs. So I might write a quick shopping list, some ideas, reformat
some list, etc. Of course it's possible that I get interrupted and then windows
wants to restart or whatever. However, what I really want (and what I am used to
within another editor) is to save unnamed files. It makes life really easier if
you can have temporary files and just save them if you want to and not because
you are forced to.
In short: The only condition, >>that I need to save the text first<<, doesn't
fit me, and also many other programs (like word) do not require that.
What do you think?
