While I am not about to switch from TeXShop for any number of  
reasons, I , for one, would welcome an editor-war just to see what  
BBEdit/TextWrangler and Textmate really ARE. In fact, I am fiddling  
with the idea of learning a bit of Python to embed it in LaTeX and  
the first thing I ran into was what editor to use. This brings me  
back to a few years ago when I started on LaTeX and had no idea what  
to do.

For me, terminal is out. But, still, I am curious as to why use  
Textmate + Skim as opposed to, say, TexShop. Etc. No reason why not  
have a civilized war.

Such as?

But, should the war be started, it should of course be on a new thread.
