    One small rectification: Aptana is *not* open-source. The license does not allow redistributing it, or redistrubuting “any derivative work of the Program”, which means that no other open-source project can take advantage of it. See the license file ( http://www.aptana.com/legal/apl/ ):
    “THIS LICENSE GRANTS PERMISSIONS ONLY FOR YOUR INTERNAL USE (AS DEFINED BELOW). IF YOU WISH TO DISTRIBUTE OR MAKE OTHER USES OF THE PROGRAM, PLEASE CONTACT APTANA.”

    It’s a little disappointing, especially since they blurry it by calling it “source open” (note the subtlety…).
