   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,
