TeXworks is a simple GUI for editing *TeX, and watching the output at the same time:


You can also click somewhere in the PDF view and 'jump to source'. Used it a few times when polishing/debugging a LaTeX document, I generally don't use it for writing though. (I prefer to do all my writing in Vim).

I've seen TeXworks, but it's different than TeXmacs, which is real WYSIWYG editing with a TeX-like layout engine. TeXworks is still very cool, though.

That's an argument against using it, it seems to me. Having the words jump around as you type them is maddening.
