That's closed source vendor lock-in biting you in the ass. Now that you're hooked, you have to beg for platform support.

How many free software libraries were used in the development of Sublime? Switch to free software and compile for ARM any time you want.
I tend to agree. There's just about nothing in the open source repositories that won't Just Compile on ARM. The developers claiming it's too much time for too little return is a cop out.
Add my +1 to the request for an ARM port, but I'm not buying your excuse. Grab yourself a $35 Pi, compile a Linux version, and recover your $35 investment with the very first sale. You'll get tons of publicity for doing it, because the Raspberry Pi is a very very hot topic nowadays, and you'll get a ton of very young users who will learn to love your app from a young age and continue to promote it for years to come. It's a no brainer in my book. Just do it.
