As much as it's something that millions have wished that it would do over the years, it's really hard to argue that it was ever a bug or even an omission.

Notepad exists as a simple DOS/Windows text-editor and has never tried to claim any grander purpose than that.

Those of us (lets be honest, pretty well all of us) who have at some point used it to work on files from sources other than its native OS, have, in truth, being using the product for something for which it was never intended.

Microsoft could, had they wished, have made a very strong - possible inarguable - case for not doing it but have instead taken a pragmatic line and decided to give us a feature that we've always wanted even though it could be classed as mission creep.
98.4% of statistics are made up on the spot.
