When David first wrote about TextMate he mentioned how on Windows he had UltraEdit, and knew of TextPad as a decent alternative. In fact there should be at least half a dozen well known editors on Windows.
These editors still exist, but based on my inbox (and the latter comments for this blog entry) Windows users are craving for more, they want TextMate!
My interest in writing Windows software is still nil, but it seems the chances for a TextMate inspired editor on Windows is getting better. Presently I am aware of three projects which try to recreate it, yet so far only one has left vaporware state.
Introducing e Editor. This editor uses the TextMate bundles as-is, and is written by Alexander Stigsen, a fellow Dane who I met with a few weeks ago.
