I know we have users of Alpha and Aquamacs here so I certainly won't  
comment in detail. I do know that Aquamacs is the most ``Mac like''  
of the emacs-en available. It comes with AucTeX built-in so has some  
very powerful ``knowledge'' about LaTeX. You can use TeXniscope and  
TeXShop (and, I believe iTeXMac too) as an external viewer that  
automatically updates when the pdf updates.

I guess I'm thrown by the lisp-like and obscure (to me) programming  
needed to customize Aquamacs.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
