Ubuntu – the license conditions to use Sublime text? Can I use it for free in Ubuntu


What's the deal with Sublime text (v2 in particular)? I want to use it simply for practice (currently HTML5/CSS). Is it legal to use for free if I'm not using it for financial gain?

Sublime is not Free Software, but you can use it without pay any cent.

The condition is that you can use it:

  • As evaluation period, which does not have a time limitation; or
  • With a paid License (per user)

Source (official site):

Sublime Text 2 may be downloaded and evaluated for free, however a license must be purchased for continued use. There is currently no enforced time limit for the evaluation.

Here is the End User License Agreement.
