GNU TeXmacs [1] exists for real but the "macs" ending does not stand for 
Mac but for "macros" :-)

"GNU TeXmacs is a free wysiwyw (what you see is what you want) editing 
platform with special features for scientists. [...]

The software includes a text editor with support for mathematical 
formulas, a small technical picture editor and a tool for making 
presentations from a laptop. Moreover, TeXmacs can be used as an 
interface for many external systems for computer algebra, numerical 
analysis, statistics, etc. [...]

TeXmacs runs on all major Unix platforms and Windows. Documents can be 
saved in TeXmacs, Xml or Scheme format and printed as Postscript or Pdf 
files. Converters exist for TeX/LaTeX and Html/Mathml." [1]
