As a long-time user of textures, (Mac Plus/Quadra/Centris/imac), I am  
also sentimental about Blue Sky. However, I cannot possibly see what  
a commercial program with a price tag in the couple $100 range can  
offer today. Within days after installing my first OS X, I had a  
complete TeX installation for free, thanks to Gerben, Dick, and this  
list. Bugs are fixed quickly, features are added almost on demand,  
and all this at the cost of voluntary donations. The only feature I  
still miss from textures is it's incredible synchronization but  
still, texhop with pdfsync works pretty ok, so this feature by itself  
does not tip the scale for me. What is really sad and depressing is  
that Blue Sky does not seem to recognize the changing reality but  
seems to live in some point in the past...
