Just for the record, that hasn't been true for a long time. Notepad opens
large files just fine (well, fine is a matter of definition, since it needs
to load the whole file in RAM which is interesting when you open gigabyte

And notepad doesn't carry the risk of people saving the file in word format
(yes, this happens all too frequently from what I've seen)
