What about Tinn-R?

www.sciviews.org (but the "correct" link is the R site)

It's free and with a lot of interesting features.

Afaik, no latex and for windows only.

I'll spend some hours to get used to *emacs though...it'll pay off!!

My 2 cents

<Rau,>a good interface, for sure, is Emacs[1] (or XEmacs[2]) in conjunction

<Rau,>(and I am also still learning more and more new features).
