Looking to learn something new?
is text mate the same thing as text editor app, on an apple computer?
Textmate isn't necessary--BUT is a great code editor for Mac. It does much more than an ordinary text editor--mainly, it offers all kinds of features that help you code better and faster. It's worthwhile to use an editor like it (or, say, Sublime Text).

TextMate have Syntax Highlighting, Code completition, Autocomplete, Filebrowsing, and lots of coder stuff.
I dont think that a basic text-editor has that
