Pros: There will always be pros and cons and there is no "best of all" editor out there. SynWrite does many things right and it's clear that there are missing some things. A plugin manager is one of these things. On the other hand, its update frequency is high. New releases comes out every few days and i'm sure that there will be more features soon. The good thing is, if you have any reasonable wishes, the developer will try to realize it asap.
Cons: Plugin manager not pre-installed.
Other Thoughts: Personally I'm missing nothing and I'm totally happy with current feature set for my daily work. So it's not important for me if other editors can do more. Synwrite offers a plugin mode for Total Commander file manager. No other editors can do this. Don't like ST because of its dark interface. N++ interface is bad too.
