I have been a (relatively) long time Sublime Text 2 user. Early 2011, I was running Ubuntu on my laptop and wasn't happy with any text editors I was finding. I gazed longingly at TextMate on my colleagues's Macbooks, but overall I was happy with my OS choice and wasn't ready to make that leap. Then I discovered Sublime, and fell in love. Over time I have learned some things, and developed some methods that have made Sublime and I the best of friends.
