I agree with what you're saying. I should probably reiterate myself and 
state that I'm not saying that this little thing I'm doing should be the 
be all and end all document to get people started. It's strictly for 
those people who can't handle options and technicality before they've 
taken the first step.

It would be a real shame if anyone stopped supporting their project due 
to biased advice given to newcomers. Of course, however, there is only 
so much of a market for TeX-aware text editors. Once you've got a 
certain level of funcionality, there's no reason you need another tool 
that does the same job.

In summary, I expect people will find out about the other editors as 
soon as they've worked out where they stand with TeX. I don't think my 
document changes the situation so drastically---in fact, it may even 
help people past the whole "TeXShop IS TeX" questions from new list members.

guidelines, information, and LaTeX/TeX resources.
