Thank you, Herb,
Your advice worked, and I could change the default to pdfTeX instead of pdfLaTex.
Thank you also Ross, for your assistance.
Also, thanks to Akira Kakuto, from texworks at tug.org,
the problem was found.
He analized both the TeXworks output in the mac, and the one in MikTeX, looked at the log files,
and determined the following. In case this might be helpful to others, here is the problem he found:
You are using the default paper size a4.
Paper size is also magnified (seems strange).
You are using the default paper size letter.
Paper size is not magnified (same here on Windows, TL2014/dev, pdfTeX-1.40.15).
And here is the solution he suggested, which worked perfectly well:
\pdfpagewidth=210 true mm
\pdfpageheight=297 true mm
\pdfhorigin=1 true in
\pdfvorigin=1 true in

The default is indeed pdflatex, and I have to change it to pdftex every time I typeset a document (unlike the MaC TeX shop, for which I can declare what I want to be the default.
