   I don't know what you mean by a folding editor or Microsoft-centric, but I am using R, WinEdt, and MikTeX on WinXP. I have been using Sweave with this setup for several months and have been happy with it. Thanks to Uwe Ligges, the RWinEdt package provides R enhancements to WinEdt, and WinEdt is configured to work with MikTeX by default (can be configured to work with other LaTeX systems).

   The editor itself is very intuitive - all you really need to know to get started is how to write *.Rnw files (via Sweave documentation and the many examples on can find). I can recommend this setup for anyone working on Windows.

hope this helps,
