There’s not many truly revolutionary desktop writing applications – but the real-time, collaborative, editor SubEthaEdit from CodingMonkeys is definitely near the top of the list. It has certainly influenced a number of web application developers, as sort of a ‘gold standard’ for what online collaboration could be like.
For a long time Subethaedit was a shareware program – but they recently switched to a pay-only structure (which made me sad inside). However, have no fear! If you’re not familiar with BLOGZOT 2.0 on MacZOT.com, it’s this opportunity where an app developer ‘donates’ a number of copies of their application in return for
page rank a link back to their site. If enough people actually add the links back, then MacZOT and TheCodingMonkeys will award $105,000 in Mac software to all those who participated. Regardless, I think this is a great opportunity to get a free serial key for Subethaedit, if nothing else. So, check it out and if you have a blog, send a little link love – if anyone deserves it, it’s the developers of Subethaedit.
