I recently discovered Sublime Text 2, an amazing text editor that sits perfectly in the middle ground of better-than-textmate and less-powerful-than-vim. If you followed the link, and happend to have been a Windows user of the early to mid 2000’s, you’ll notice that the software has an evaluation license reminiscent of Winzip.
Sublime Text 2 may be downloaded and evaluated for free, however a license must be purchased for continued use. There is currently no enforced time limit for the evaluation.
So, while it’s basically freeware, I have a strong feeling even the most fervent of penny-pinchers will shell out the $59 for a license after a short while of use. If not, it bugs you every 100 saves or so with a pop up asking you to buy a license that you can just close out of. Now, let’s get to the point.
