I guess people are a little branded by textmate like editors. Textmate itself suffered from bad support, E suffered from bad support, some others I already forgot about did and now the development of sublime slows down.
BUT in my opinion there is a HUGE difference between these projects and Sublime: While every version of E introduced new bugs and unofficially never got out of beta, Sublime is major. Heck, I licensed Sublime over a year ago and always run the latest nightly build and even with that I did not have ONE single crash or anything like that in a year. Sublime runs just fine and does everything I knew it does when I paid a few bucks for the licence.
So start getting productive and stop yelling
