is a great text editor for programmers whose main principle is to help its user be as productive as possible. A typical example of Pepper's innovations is the invention of the "Accelerator". The Accelerator allows you to enter text or code quickly with a simple keystroke. Hekkelman Programmatuur, the company behind Pepper, will give away for free a copy of Pepper 4
to a lucky OSNews reader. Pepper currently runs on MacOS/X, Windows2k/XP, while a release for Linux and FreeBSD (and possibly IRIX and Solaris) will be ready in the next few months. The winner will receive a "keycode" unlocking the software for all platforms. Read more to see how you can enter the competition. Update:

Things you need to know before entering the competition:
ALL the form fields below need to be field with real and honest information, so Hekkelman Programmatuur can reply to you in case you won.
Hekkelman Programmatuur will pick up one winner we will be announced on OSNews at that very day.
OSNews does not accept any other responsibility other than hosting this competition. OSNews does not receive any information from the form, Hekkelman Programmatuur does.
The competition will be active Monday, May 6th 2002.
Hekkelman Programmatuur retains the right to add your email address to their ANNOUNCE-only mailing list (low traffic, 1-2 emails per month or so), but do not worry, your email address will only be used for this purpose and not any other.
If you win but you fail to reply to Hekkelman Programmatuur with your snail mail address (so they can send you the keycode to register) within a week, another winner will be chosen in your place.
You are allowed one entry.
Good luck everyone!
