Howdy, :-)

Thanks for your feedback!

> How long ago was that written, In the TeXShop section you say ``TeXShop is a TEX previewer for MacOS X, Apples new Unix-based operating system for the Macintosh. It uses teTeX as an engine, typesetting primarily with pdftex and pdflatex. The pdf output is displayed using Apples internal pdf display code.'' 
> But OS X is certainly not ``new'' since it was release for 14 years ago. Not only that you don't seem to mention that both TeXShop and Lyx still need an underlying TeX Distribution to typeset a document.

> Finally, no mention of TeXmaker, TeXstudio, TeXWriter, TeXworks, TeXnicle, etc., all alternative front ends to a TeX distribution (most folks install TeX Live via the MacTeX package --- NOT teTeX which hasn't been supported in a very long time).
> I'm sure I missed tons of other possibilities! Oh, yes, how about Aquamacs emacs which has a LaTeX mode or Vim or ... .

I update the page and included your info! I hope this is better now!?

Thanks a lot,
