 BBEdit: Its Unix Support Doesn't Suck Either

"Most Macintosh developers have not grown up with the notion that their editor is a powerful, multi-use tool. Something, in effect, that serves many uses and is extendable to many problem domains. For example, one of the reasons I've always liked Emacs is its stability, features, and expendability. With Emacs, you can open a shell within a buffer, edit remote files using Ange ftp, and extend the editor's functionally with Elisp. In addition, the language modes are a great selling point for using the editor for all your writing needs."
