BBEdit Lives Long and Prospers

On Twitter today:

Celebrating back to school? Most of today's undergraduates have never lived in a world without BBEdit.

All our attention is focussed on the race-to-the-bottom, in-app purchase rip-offs or the current fad app, but we forget that software, well-built and well-maintained software, has no shelf life.

I still use BBEdit every day. It still doesn’t suck!

Kudos to Rich Siegel (@siegel) and his team at BareBones for consistently making such an amazing and useful application.

FYI: The long, stable history of BBEdit is on it’s Wikipedia page. Follow the author as @hiltmon on Twitter and @hiltmon on App.Net. Mute #xpost on one.
