There’s a new kid on the block when it comes to Mac text editors: say hello to TextMate. Check out the front page of the site — now, whoever can these people be referring to?

It’s time to turn envy into pride and end your desire for Windows- and UNIX-based editors once and for all. TextMate is The Missing Editor that has puzzled switchers by its absence and kept veterans longing. With a wealth of exclusive features like tabs, foldings, and macros, TextMate is well ahead of other native, graphical editor on OS X [sic] — and you don’t have to sell your bones to afford it.

(My emphasis). That’s fighting talk where I come from!
