A video on using Ext is a good idea, and is something we've been talking about recently. :-)
I don't have any trouble loading ext-all-debug.js in standalone Studio build 1.1.7; if you're using the Eclipse plugin or a different version, let us know. Bug reports and enhancement requests are always welcome at http://support.aptana.com/asap/.
Thanks for the feedback!

The biggest differences for me is the autocomplete is much more reliable in SPKET and the syntax colouring works perfectly - I just can't say the same for Aptana.
Basic example of code complete in SPKET:
The above works conditionally in Aptana depending on where in your code you attempt the autocomplete - Even then, it's just not as detailed:
Code complete in Aptana:
I don't want to knock the Aptana editor unconditionally - they are doing some good work, it's just that in my opinion and based on my own experiences, SPKET exceeds it in nearly every way.

And I do fresh install, create a simple web project, add Ext library, and open its ext_sample.htm, type couple lines code, it is already using about 300M memory.
The features which Aptana does not have.
1. code assist for configuration parameter. it will list the configueation parameters and where it be defined. see screen shot 1.
2. Select Ext function, using Ctrl+left mouse button or F3, you can jump to the Ext source code, help you to learn how Ext works. see screen shot 2.
3. the code assist simply works. see screen shot 3.
4. code assist works well for Custom class. see screen shot 4, 5.Spket IDE - Development Tool for RIA
