No, it wasn't me. The Wikipedia text was added in October 2010 by
anonymous. Of course I wasn't really serious when I wrote the above.
But as you may know, Textmate has already been mentioned along with
other famous vaporware in this Wired article:

I can appreciate that people find Textmate 1 "good enough", and I did
so myself for a long time. I have however switched to Vim now. I will
no doubt have another look at Textmate when version 2 eventually
releases, but for now I am happy with Vim.
