TextMate wouldn’t have been released as what it is today without the help of great people and products. We’d like to thank Jason Hoffman and Dean Allen for their absolutely incredible support getting MacroMates.com running and accepting payments on TextDrive. If you ever need hosting, they’re the place to go.
Jason Fried and the rest of the gang at 37signals also deserves our thanks for Basecamp (yes, we’re partly thanking ourselves here). The shared todo lists helped us immensely in steering the project and served as a hub for beta testers. If you ever need to manage projects (software or otherwise), that’s the place to do it.
We’d also like to thank our early crusaders. People like Justin French and but she’s a girl. Their support has brought warmth to our hearts. Equally so, the first end-user innovators, like Jason and James A. Baker have our deep respect. In the same vein, we’d like to thank personal friends Sune Foldager for chaperoning the flood of activity on the mailing list and Benny Kjær Nielsen for believing in the product.
And finally, we’d like to thank all the beautiful people who’ve already registered their copy of TextMate within the first two days (and Rich Killmer for being customer #1). That’s the ultimate sign of appreciation for a shareware developer. You guys will be responsible for getting 1.1 done so much faster as your funds will enable us to replace the old G4 733 Mhz compiling machine with a brand new dual G5 2.5 Ghz.
