 I am a college student and personally know several people who are new to
both Linux and LaTeX and are required to learn both.  I really think it
would be easier for them to use Texmaker, since they don't know how to use
emacs or vim initially.  I just think it would be nice to have one
officially supported GUI LaTeX editor which can work for everyone, even
those new to Linux.

Secondly, you do support auctex.  I doubt an overwhelmingly high number of
Ubuntu users use auctex.  Why support a LaTeX editor which only appeals to
emacs users when you could support one that can work for everyone?
