Hi Pablo,

Regarding MacOS X, the user can choose which application opens files with a .tex suffix. 
For instance if one wishes to open any tex file with TeXWorks, when one is on the Finder, one selects such a file by clicking once on it and then selecting in the menu File -> Get Info, or equivalently pressing command-I, one gets a window in which one may select under the menu « Open with » which application opens that specific file (for instance one may choose TeXWorks). In the same menu, one can decide that any file with the same suffix should be opened with the chosen application (for instance TeXWorks).

In your upcoming instructions for using ConTeXt, I think you should mention that TeXShop

 is a great application for typesetting tex files (as a matter of fact, people behind TeXWorks wanted to create an application feeling like TeXShop for all platforms, taking into account the fact that Richard Koch created TeXShop only for MacOS).

Best regards: OK
