I'm searching for my programming tool, i.e. a text editor. I like Notepad very much but I want a text editor with alternate background color for each line. Just like the background of the picture below:

Any ideas?

you mean alternating background color. Might want to change that to relieve confusion. – Keltari Aug 25 '11 at 1:04

That's syntax highlighting. Try notepad++,

notepad++ can't do it. What I mean is the white and grey color for each line and nothing to do with the text/syntax – Dee Jay Aug 24 '11 at 19:26

Here's a potential solution for achieving it in Vim...
