[OS X TeX] OT? advice for a windows-using friend

A friend of mine mentioned the other day that he was using Scientific 
Word to do his PhD in physics, and that when he was done he would have 
to either buy it or use something else; he's using a license from his 
university in Ankara.

I mentioned LaTeX and the pdfsync work that has been done here and he 
was quite interested, until I told him that this was all for OS X. He 
asked whether such a thing existed for Windows.

ISTR that question coming up here before, and the aswer being 'no.' Is 
this the case? In any event, are there places for Windows TeX users 
similar to the wonderful OS X TeX site of Joe Slater & Gary Gray? I'm 
going to talk to him about OS X, and maybe he'll be interested, but I 
do want to be able to help him out even if he doesn't want to come over 
to the Mac side. References and URL's would be much appreciated. TIA
