Hi there!

Just finished the very first clip. Do i follow suit using Notepad? I read somewhere in the FAQ that I would need sublime.

There's also the new Workspaces feature here on Treehouse. I do recommend Sublime Text 2 though.

Why not try using Workspaces? It's in the sidebar on the left side of the site. :)

You can use notepad but Sublime is very good. I personally use and love it so I bought the full version. If you want a good free text editor, try NotePad++ and I'm sure the crew here should have some great recommendations. Also, be sure to check at the bottom of some of videos, they have great links to some pretty handy resources. Cheers!
