is this a hobby?

Man, I think I am a notepad junkie. I have a lot of text editors in my computer. I started out testing software, but then I ended up buying online. Yesterday, I looked at the content of my old computer and found out that I had filled it up with a lot of applications for note-taking and editing. Would you consider this a hobby: collecting notepad and wordpad replacements? I have also have installed differend kinds of programming editors: html, css, php... And they just sit in my computer!

A hobby is basically defined as anything you enjoy doing that does not make a profit. So yeah, call it a hobby if you like!

well there are some hobbies that are profitable too. like stamp collection, gardening, etc.

I am sure it can be called a hobby, or developing a new field of interest. It certainly is most interesting, and could end up being very lucrative? I sometimes do that as well, but loose interest quickly. When I changed from one computer to another most recently, and had to cull a lot of files, I also found that my sub-directory with downloads was the bulkiest. But it stopped right there at the testing phase. Seems as though the Notepad has taken things a few steps further. Good stuff!

I use M8 Multi-Clipboard frequently. It's more of a tendency then a hobby.

It counts, bro. I guess you reallly wanna find the best one out of it although the path seems endless.

I would consider it a hobby. If you enjoy doing it, and do it all the time, why not?
Chinmoy

Well, if you enjoy it. Who are we or I to judge that it wouldn't count as a hobby. There are alot of weird, but fun, hobbies out there.

i think it does count as a hobby. but do you have any thoughts on taking that further? like developing your own notepad replacement? i mean, you must've seen pros and cons of a large number of such programs, and if you can come up with a new program taking the good points and leaving the bad ones from what you've seen, it just may prove to be a lucrative hobby after all.

Of course it's a hobby. But is it a GOOD hobby?

A good hobby is one you can talk about. Like, what are the best points about the best notebook replacements? Is there one you really use the most? and why?

A real problem with such a specialist hobby is finding other enthusiasts who you can share it with.

I'm not one.

But I AM interested in your opinion on what is the best.

Did the same, ended with most convenient group: treepad, metapad and notepad++ .
Hobby is sometimes what we explored in depth and with great deal of passion and interest Laughing

It certainly sounds like a hobby. People collect a lot of different stuff... in your case it seems to be text editors.

Ideally a hobby should have purpose, and it seems like an ok hobby.

I don't think so. I've seen another page with lots of editors on it -- all kinds. And the author gives a review of each.
