No longer a SubEthaEdit virgin
After I posted the tips and tricks list last night, my friend Wilhelm IM'ed me and we ended up doing some stuff with SubEthaEdit -- this was my first time editing a document with someone. We were able to edit some documents with each other across the Internet. I know that this is probably old news for lots of people, but this is very useful, especially if you work remotely like I do.

I have no trouble imagining a work session that involve iChat AV with an iSight in audio or video mode, along with a collaboratively edited document in SubEthaEdit. When you couple this with TextExtras, you get a really useful tool suite. I can even conceive of doing pair programming in such an environment.

When are we going to see stuff like this on Linux? No excuses about Rendezvous, what Wilhelm and I did last night had nothing to do with Rendezvous. And what about TextExtras? Are the GNOME and KDE textediting widget extensible in the same way?

There's another collaborative editor for Mac OS X, iStorm.  It covers a different area than SubEthaEdit, focusing more on writing documents (especially technical documents with a decent inline TeX system and calculator).  It has chat and communication features built in.

But it's another Rendezvous based editor for Mac OS X (it actually predates SubEthaEdit by a couple of months), and the two of them show how simple collaboration can be.  I think that's what really makes them stand out.
