Saw "Free", then I saw "Purchase A License".

In part its still free. Just you will get the annoying purchase dialog here and there. But the software is rather free to use with no visible limitations. So "Purchase A License" is not a major concern. Aldo I love Sublime Text 3 I still think Notepad++ is much better do to the sole reason it has a build in FTP.
