If I'm not completely mistaken, you're wrong. MikTeX isn't a GUI but  
a TeX distribution, comparable to what Gerben does with his i- 
installer packages.

TeXnic Center is a graphical fronted similar to TeXShop. AFAIK it's  
even more Word-like, though I can't really comment on it since I  
haven't used it.

As for a replacement for BibDesk (which doesn't exist, of course).  
JabRef is Java and runs on many systems.
