"Still stuck in 68k land."

December 06, 2007  |  By krazytekn0

 |  Version: BBEdit 8.7.1


If you ever need to reverse the text order in a document this might be useful, but when have you ever needed to do that.


BBEdit is so stuck in the dark ages of programming that it's not even funny. It touts itself as a source-code editor, Apple Xcode works many orders of magnitude better and faster and comes free with Mac OS X, as well as a free download. The guy behind BBEdit seems to think that his version of TextEdit is worth as much as Apple's entire operating system. If you want to try it go ahead, the program hasn't been substantively changed in 7 or 8 years. The developer knows nothing about the current ways to do things in OS X and is a left over 68k mac guy that refuses to learn. DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS.
