I am wondering why the windows verision is the only one with the built
in editor. It would be nice if the linux version could have the
windows editor also. A SVGA and Xwindows version would be nice. This
editor should be in the MAC povray also. Also a BE version of Povray
should be in the list of official ports.

Yes, that is one reason that i don´t use the linux-version ...
And best complete for X-windows ...

From what I can see from the screenshots at
http://mac.povray.org/screenshot.html it loos like there actually is an
editor for MacPOV-Ray

It would be good for the linux version to have a built-in editor, although
it seems (from p.unix) that most people just use x/emacs with pov-mode as
their editor.

x/emacs with pov-mode is very nice (I have to say that as maintainer;),
but 
really, you get the pretty much the same stuff as with the
windows-version 
(and the macversion as seen in those screenshots). I'm working on
enhancing
the povmode quite a bit, and will try to get everything working by the
end
of summer (winter for you who walk upside down). The most noticable new
feature
will be a major change to the syntax highlighting, pov-mode will get
it's own
font-lock-faces. I will also try to add buttons to the buttonbar in
xemacs, but
thats not a priority.

/Peter, pov-mode maintainer and hungry.
