Sure you can.  Mac OS X users traditionally complain loudly about  
faults and grievances they find with OS X.  You'll rarely find a more  
critical bunch than aggrieved Mac users.  That a piece of software is  
good does not make it impervious to criticism.

Someone else brought up MacVim, and it's an interesting point.  For a  
long time, I used Textmate exclusively.  But now, I only use Textmate  
around 50% of the time -- the other half taken up by MacVim, when I  
need split panes, remote editing, or an editor that will not choke on  
large text files.
