RISC OS "Last month, I thought I left RISC OS. After 19 years of using Acorn or Acorn-derived computers, my love affair is no longer. I sit here writing this on my Mac Mini, and very happy I am with it too. My Iyonix lies abandoned - still sitting under the desk here, but not connected. And not actually used for some time. And it's weird - because, in some strange way, I thought I would be using RISC OS forever. In January 2005, I said: 'There's people who annoy me on the RISC OS scene, and I still wouldn't think of leaving. The nice people more than cancel it out, and besides - I just couldn't really do without using RISC OS.' So what changed?"

I left em because of Mac (MacOS 9.0 ..) anyway, ONE program I missing is the !ZAP text editor.. I wish to see a version of it on other platforms...

!Zap was pretty good, but I must admit I was never a fan.

On Mac OS X I've been using TextWrangler - free, based on BBEdit... More recently I've been trying out TextMate - it's very good, and am even considering paying the 39 license fee.
