Well, that's mostly your inexperience with it, no?  You could use
textedit and change one option to save as text, or subethaedit and it
saves text by default I believe.  Or open a terminal and use vi or
emacs or pico or whatever...

It's a different system, there are different apps to do things and it
takes time to find the right ones.

Though I certainly understand just liking linux better.
