Do you know Synthesia ? It's an excellent soft for piano players, and developpers make a really good job like you, and 2 years ago, I bought a license for only 10$.

If he has sold 5,000 copies for $60 bucks (I have no idea how many have been sold) then he's made $300,000 in sales. That doesn't mean he's made $300k though. I can't speak for the developer, but I pay taxes that would cut that number down significantly. Then there's healthcare costs, medicare, 401k (and other retirement funds) to think of. Also, don't forget that he's been working on this for years - he may not have made anywhere near that amount of money. I'd be willing to bet that the developer doesn't get paid much at all when all is said and done.

Awesome. Why don't you use Synthesia to write some code?

It's not as simple as relativist "I make that much from developing with it in x hours" thinking, the fact of the matter is that within its own marketplace, it's expensive. If you do want to look at it from a relative perspective then consider, for example, school-age hobbyist coders and countries with a much lower GDP per capita than America (i.e. most of us) where the price is steeper in "real" terms. Even when I was programming for fun during my school years, I would've paid for a program like Sublime could I have afforded it.

To the OP, yeah, $59 it's a good price for a text editor, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
