      As an Atom fork it has the same problems like Atom being more an IDE than an editor and the usage of the Electron Framework results in extremely more RAM usage (more than factor 10), CPU usage, loading time and disk usage.

      Similar interface and functionality of a code editor, but Atom uses a lot of resources being that it is written in JavaScript.

      Kovah While Sublime is more like an editor, Atom is more like an IDE. A slow and bulky IDE.

      I dont like Atom as alternative of sublime text because it is much bigger then a sublime (about 200 mb against about 30mb) so it is bloatware.

      Really slow editor, flashy but not an alternative to Sublime which focuses on speed and versatility. It has many plugins like sublime though.
