Someone can correct me if I'm wrong because my understanding of BibTeX is not that great, but it seems to me that Endnote data is richer, so that you are forced to map specific Endnote fields into generic BibTeX fields (like "notes").  Also, the BibTeX style included with Endnote sucks (at least for my needs).

When Michael opensources BibDesk, it'd be nice to see it develop into a more general-purpose ref manager (and so to be able to work with non-TeX OS X apps, to import/export Endnote data, etc.).
