I'm one of the bluefish developers. I'm currently working on the Windows port. I further maintain the official Debian package(s) and also provide Debian/Ubuntu packages for the development version.
My main interests are chemistry and free software. I therefor maintain around 50 software packages for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution, but I also have a few own projects.
I prefer bluefish for all kind of text formats (XML, HTML, C, ...).
