Well, you know that I won't say anything bad about BibDesk, really ...

"Probably-equal" just was to mean that the two applications don't  
really do the same thing -- BibDesk is a great BibDesk database but  
not (yet) an universal bibliographic tool, EndNote once was intended  
to be the latter, but afaik has turned into a mediocre Word-only  
bibliographic tool.
Not well phrased, and, when I re-think it, not true either, since I  
am not in the least interested in trying out the EndNote beta.
