I am currently using Ultra Edit 32 as an eval.  I am about to purchase the app but wanted to know if there was a simple raw text file editor built into Visual Studio.net

Thanks

Well, Visual Studio can do (almost) all which UltraEdit can do. I use both; UltraEdit loads pretty quickly and has a very nice column mode (VStudio may have that too, but I haven't found out).

You can use VStudio to edit text files, but it's kind of overkill. Like taking the SUV to buy a pack of salt in the shop next block...

You don't - it's part of Visual Studio. Open Visual Studio, then open the file. You can't have it without the development environment (as far as I know; that's why I use UltraEdit for the occasional quick job).
