'Free' in free software refers to freedom, not price (think free speech, not
free beer). XML Notepad is freeware (currently), not free software. I think
distinction here is really important.

And about the utility of a dedicated xml editor vs a text editor, it is
defenitively a question of personal taste. It all depends of the editor, the
ease you have with it, etc... As a die-hard vim-user, i never found any
specialized xml editor which allowed so many functionalities.
