Yes, but can it do my espresso?

A bit more seriously: Is there somewhere a detailed comparison of  
Alpha with TeXShop?

In particular, I would like to know:

	1. How easy it is to install and configure compared with TeXShop via  

	2. How the previewing compares with that of TeXShop,

	3. How the synchronization works compares with that of TeXShop.

I am sure Alpha can do the above very well but it is not dedicated to  
LaTeX as TeXShop is and, while folding would be invaluable to me—the  
only reason I would consider switching, I lack the time to fiddle  
with things I don't understand (e.g. the terminal) in order to find  
out how Alpha does it.
