[OS X TeX] What do I miss out on?

I have been on this list since September last year or so. I have learnt 
a lot, and I keep learning a lot from the extremely competent, friendly 
and helpful people posting here. Last I learned about the filtering 
capacities in BibDesk and just before that, from Marten's hints, about 
the comment.sty package which I immediately started using.

A recurring feature is the praising of various editors and previewers, 
combinations of them and scripts for making them co-operate. I scan 
those mails and think that, hmm, sounds interesting, maybe I should 
check that out. Then maybe I download something, open the editor, look 
at the menus and do a little more before I start feeling it is getting 
complicated and postpone the rest.

Checking out properly requires a fair bit of time investment, and one 
doesn't know if it will be worth while. So, I'll take the opportunity to 
put the question to the experts on this list:

I am using TeXShop, and I like it a lot. What do I most importantly miss 
out on by not using BBEdit, or Emacs, or Alpha(X/TK), or TextWrangler, 
or TextMate, or something yet more interesting instead (or as external 
editor in combination with)?

Maybe I should add that I also make extensive use of Typeit4me, 
CopyPaste and even some use of IKey together with Macros in TeXShop.
