I agree with the fact that we need a simpler text editor, but let's
just call it as "Textpad" or something....... without excluding gedit.

Nobody is excluding gedit. The gedit developers *want* their project
to be called "gedit" rather than "Text Editor" [0]. The fact that some
distributions disrespect that wish and rebrand gedit downstream is not
enough of a reason to pick a weaker name for a different[1] upstream
project in my opinion.

[0] is fairly old,
but the response to more recent attempts to rebrand gedit has been the
same as far as I know
[1] I'm explicitly not saying "competing" - as Jasper has pointed out,
the target audience is quite different
