RStudio is probably best on both OS X and Windows.    A nice advantage 
is that it looks the same on both, so you can move back and forth.

I only know two negatives:

  - I still don't like the tiled window.  I often work on a small 
screen, and it's not enough space.

  - The editor still changes file endings to native format whenever it 
saves.  It would be better if it handled both Windows and Unix line 
endings in both systems, and left them alone unless the user asked them 
to be changed.

The positives are too numerous to list here.
