Best text editor out there.

I use both. Each has some advantages. Each has some quirks. It kinda depends on what you are doing. If you do some language intensive programming, and have mastered one of the speciaty templates for it, Textmate canbe a powerful IDE. On the other hand it bury's a lot of simple tasks under layers of wide and deep menus (e.g. zap gremlins) that bbedit exposes.

Textmate's template extensibility is a powerful thing that will contribute to it's rapid growth. But as it does it's also going to introduce inhomogeneity in the editor (everyone's personal version will vary making it hard to go from computer to computer--one of my dislikes about VI and emacs). And it will worsen the deep-broad menu problem that's already weighing textmate down.

Like I said I use both. Textmate I mainly use for python programming because it's templates are nice.

Gotta agree with you there! BB is yesterday's fashion statement; TextMate is tomorrow's. :)

I also use both, BBEdit still rocks on many occassions. <br>Lately I wanted to print some Ruby code from TextMate. Shock! Horror! Everything was printed in a huge font, not colour coded etc. Back to BBEdit, just to print! <br>Then I wanted to edit some files on a remote server. Wait, where's the menu item in TextMate to do this? Oh, it doesn't exist (yet).
Hmm, let's open that 65 MB log file to do some grepping: BBEdit : 1.3 seconds; TextMate : 18 seconds.

Yes, I like TextMate, no, it's not a replacement for BBEdit.

I too use both. BBEdit search and replace and file comparison is just killer, but all else I use TextMate.
