There is also a rather old version running natively under Windows 1.0.5 something. But I think TeXmacs is somewhat hard to use and would always recommend LyX unless someone likes to embed calculations in a LaTeX like (which is I admit a really nice feature of TeXmacs. especially with maxima ) I even recommend LyX for Windows since you don't need the cygwin stuff - it runs nicely and native under Windows.

So especially if someone is a newbie the installation and use of LyX is really much easier especially compared to any cygwin approach if one does not like the direct "programming" of LaTeX code in a nice editor environment like that of WinEdt or TeXnicCenter or whatever....
