Do you mean the Windows editor?

If you're using PuTTY to access your Ubuntu machine just enable PuTTY's
session logging to a file:

"Configuration - Session - Logging" on the left
Check "Printable output" and specify a filename on the right.
Click "Apply", go to your session, "cat" your file, then go back to PuTTY Configuration
and check "None" at "Session logging"

Now you can edit the logfile using whatever Windows editor you desire.

Makes no difference in regard to the guest Linux you're logged in to.
