Atom – the open-source editor, developed by GitHub was realeased for 64-bit Ubuntu (or derivative) users.

Here is the short how to about installing Atom on your Ubuntu machine. For now it works only for 64-bit machines.

git clone
cd atom
script/build # Creates application at /tmp/atom-build/Atom
sudo script/grunt install # Installs command to /usr/local/bin/atom

We’ll now also try to check how really Atom is and you can find our opinion soon.
