Hello everyone, I am Paris, co-founder of SourceLair, a product competitive to Cloud9.
I was pointed to this thread via one of our users. Since I saw quite a few frustrated people, I thought about sharing a couple of words about us and possibly offer an alternative, without being too aggressive.
Our customers are primarily professional web developers and educational organisations. If you fit in this group, it might be worth giving SourceLair a shot.
Last, we have been around for around 8 years, our company is profitable and we plan to continue supporting our products and customers for as long as “forever” means in internet-land. This means that there are no sunsetting, acquisition etc. plans at all.
If you have any questions. I would love to help.
