I just found out about Sublime and trying out the Sublime 2 beta version. It seems to be great and looks like some thing I can consider as my main editor/IDE.Few things i need to know before I switch though:
]Is Siblime Text an opensource project?/]]What license id the project under?/]]What's the difference between registers and unregistered versions/instances?/]]Is the registration fee a one time payment or recurring/]]Do I need to register multiple installations separately?/]]Do i need to re-register new releases?/]
"continued use".. hmm, okay, so it implies that the unregistered version will expire? How long until that happens? Why is this so vague?
3 is covered if you purchase a ST2 license right now as it's technically a ST 3 license.
If you go to the "Buy" page and click on "Frequently Asked Questions" you will find your answers.Among other information it also says:
IMHO it's only fair to purchase a license if you're planning to keep on using ST.
Nope, actually ST unregistered never expires, it keeps popping up an alert from time to time asking you to buy a license, like some commercial plugins do, but will continue to be usable and without limitations afaik.
