Is anyone successfully running a windowed emacs, (not terminal emacs), on one of the new Mac M1s?
Does this port work? https://emacsformacosx.com
Is there another?

Yes. The Emacs from macsformacosx.com works in GUI mode on the Mac M1. It is running in x86 emulation mode, not native ARM mode, but it works.
I plan to try some of the other versions later (Mitsuharu's version, homebrew version, nativecomp version) but since this one works I'm going to use it for now.
Yes, https://emacsformacosx.com works on the M1 Macs. However, it does also require that you override the security preferences regarding app identity when you have downloaded and installed the package, immediately after running it.

In that terminal, start up emacs like this:
