I concur. Emacs is one of very few cross-platform editors with a  
special mode for R/S-Plus. If you want to give Emacs a try, I  
recommend Aquamacs (http://aquamacs.org) on OS X. It ships with the  
latest ESS and is better integrated to the OS than a regular Emacs.

In the future, post Mac related question to r-sig-mac, though.
