Happy 20th Birthday, BBEdit

Jason Snell:

All of this would be an insane nostalgia trip were it not for this amazing fact: BBEdit’s still around. And not just as a relic of the old times, but as a modern, relevant text editor. Almost none of the other apps I used in 1997 are on my hard drive today.

Of the apps I was using in 1997, BBEdit is the only one that still gets daily use. GraphicConverter got a big update recently, and I still use it a few times per month. CDFinder, DragThing, Fetch, Interarchy, and Photoshop are still around and still good, but I don’t really use them anymore.

For more old screenshots, see the ATPM reviews of BBEdit 4, 5, 6, and 7.
