One thing I like about using a Mac is the number of small shareware applications available. Of course, there are a number of these available for Windows as well, but they don’t seem to have the same usefulness or flair (or at least they didn’t used to).
For about the past month, I have been using TextMate as my primary editor. I found this entry in the TextMate blog very interesting. In it, Allan looks back at the year and reflects on becoming an independent developer. He references Gus Mueller’s blog entry about his journey (the creator of several applications including VooDooPad). Both interesting readings from two successful shareware application developers.
