[OS X TeX] Scientific Word / Scientific Assistant ?

Dear all,

A colleague of mine, a satisfied user of Scientific Word (on Windows 
machines), is going to move to a Mac-based university, and has asked me 
for advice about how to run TeX on Mac. He does not want to write TeX 
code, he wants something that essentially works like Scientific Word 
(not even like WinEdt), with its "what you see is more-or-less what you 
want" display ability.

(As a matter of fact, he started by writing code on a Mac, but when he 
switched to a PC and started using Scientific Word, he says his 
productivity has increased a lot, to the point that he does not write 
drafts by hand any more, etc. He does not care for exactness between on 
screen and final product, but on efficiency in writing and producing 
tons of papers...)

Does any of you have some experience with Scientific Assistant ? I Just 
know what is said on Gary's page (i.e., essentially nothing), and some 
real user tips would be highly appreciated.

A related question would be: Has anyone run Scientific Word through 
Virtual PC on a Mac ? How does it perform ? Etc.

Thanks in advance,

Josep Maria Font
