TeXstudio has been forked from Texmaker in 2009, because of the non-open development process of Texmaker and due to different philosophies concerning configurability and features. Originally it was called TeXmakerX because it started off as a small set of extensions to Texmaker with the hope that they would get integrated into Texmaker some day. While at some points you can still see that TeXstudio originates from Texmaker, significant changes in features and the code base have made it to a fully independent program.

TeXstudio runs on Windows, Unix/Linux, BSD and Mac OS X. It is licensed under the GPL v2. Being open source, you are free to use and to modify it as you like.
