    My OSX is 10.5.8(Macbook Air)

    It is still available on my other computer with the same OSX!! Is there somewhere i can download it ? I have tried searching for it on Apple but never found it.

    You cannot download any of the built in apps from anywhere. If you have it on another machine just copy it over. Otherwise use Pacifist to re-install from your restore DVD.

    Why don't you just copy TextEdit.app from your other mac to your applications folder? :confused:

    Who says he's got another Mac?

    Edit: Just read his signature. I'm an idiot.

    Yeah, there seems to be huge rash of these lately. It's almost as if several people are collaborating on putting together Leopard piece by piece by having various people send them zipped components.

    Oh that wasn't an ad, it was the dictionary. Hold cmd-ctrl-d and hover over a word to get a definition. I think it doesn't work in non-Cocoa apps or something like that, but it's really nice. Although you may have to adjust this option in Dictionary.app preferences:

    Good find! I never knew that. By the way vi is an editor used in Terminal. It's been around for ages.
