Like quite a lot of people on this list I would generally prefer to use some flavour of TeX (or LaTeX) to prepare text with (or indeed without) much mathematical content. Which implementation and which text editor one uses within (or outside) TeX is largely a matter of taste. I've a bias to text editors with some understanding of TeX, that is, those supporting syntax highlighting for TeX files. These are available in plenty for Windows OSes. By "equation editor" you may mean some add-on software designed to compensate for the inadequacies of word processing software in this respect. (To be fair, does any word processor claim excellence on this criterion?) I can't comment on those, as I've never used any. However, I know that many people have struggled with the fact that their word processor uses different systems for displayed equations and in-text mathematics, so that even on a simple level it is difficult if not impossible to use identical fonts. That may be folklore; however, I've never heard of a satisfactory solution to this problem except not using a word processor to prepare mathematical documents.
