Vim is, traditionally, a Linux command-line file editor (that is less wonky than that vi some weirdos swear on). While you certainly could compile it and use it on Windows, I imagine most people would probably want something a bit more graphical.

Notepad++ works fairly well and has build-in support for Lua syntax highlighting. Sublime is another great editor, but may require a plugin for highlighting (and isn't free). If PHPStorm supported syntax highlighting for Lua, I would highly recommend that, but as its name might suggest it is built around PHP.

i was supprised by it the windows version has highlighting and supports lot of languages. Although I could not make sense of its syntax checker. Im going to stick with luaedit 2010 to check syntax

Its to bad luaedit2010 did not have a better find and replace and could support xml
