Ah, but one of the nice things about TeXShop 2.03 under Tigerrrrr is  
that there is (approximate but pretty good) ``syncing'' between the  
displayed .pdf and the source .tex  without using pdfsync. That is  
because TeXShop 2.03 uses the internal PDF framework of Tigerrrr  
which allows .pdf searching.

In the end... to each his own!

Good Luck,
