It has multiple tabs (which remember the document when reopened), text formatting, text colouring for programmers, line numbers (often useful for me) and more.

Does it have any compatibility issues with Windows 7?

Same here! If there are any issues they didn't surface yet. Notepad ++ is my editor of choice ever since I had W98

I've used it a long time for software development. But if you don't write software it's probably an overkill and there are other enhanced "notepads".

If you're not into programming but just want an enhanced notepad with tabs to work on multiple documents, NoteTab Light might be for you.
