The Markdown craze started on the Mac Platform. Recently, there have appeared quite a few different versions of Markdown Editors on the Windows Platform.[1] I reported on some of these. Markdownpad seems to be one of the more popular ones. Downmarker does not seem to be a top contender. It is one of the more simple incarnations.[2] However, it allows you easily to link pages, using references to local files Markdown style: "(Mylink)[]". While the linking is not fully automatic, it works quite well.

You can thus create easily a simple Markdown wiki (even in DropBox, if you wish). It is simple, but not simple-minded. It's rather elegant. And it is free.

2. You can download Downmarker from here or, perhaps better, here .
