My colleagues on Windows use MikTeX (for the TeX installation) and  
either WinEdt or TeXnicCenter (as editor and more generally GUI front- 
end to TeX).

WinEdt is generally preferred. Beware though: AFAIK it's shareware,  
and hence as a user you're supposed to pay a fee.

Regarding TeXniCenter, the link on Joe's page <http://www.esm.psu.edu/ 
mac-tex/TeXonWindows.html> seems to have expired. Use <http:// 
www.texniccenter.org/> instead.

As to moving things between Macs and PCs, my colleagues generally use  
a USB key (on the Mac, this requires to format it in Disk Utility in  
MS-DOS format).
