Sublime Text and Floobits

Sublime Text is a super fast editor with some very nice features. (Check out the slideshow at the link.)

Floobits is a plugin for Sublime (soon for Vim too) which allows collaborative real time editing. Like Etherpad, C9.io, etc. but you get you use your local editor rather than a whimpy web editor. That said, you can also edit code in your Floobits "rooms" via the web, or invite others to join your room, etc. so they don't need an editor and plugin, but using it with Sublime is awesome.

Sublime Text 2

Though licensed, it's extremely forgiving. Download for Linux, Windows and OSX and it is fully functional, no expiration. You don't need a key, or an account, etc. Download and use. If you like it you can purchase a license for $70.
