This gives you recent snapshot of Emacs 23 (I use the patched version). I also recommend installing cygwin, and doing a little bit of work in getting emacs to use it (not difficult, but I can't remember the details). If you know linux, you are sure to find it useful. I don't suggest using a cygwin build of emacs (I think the native build will be easier to use). One advantage of having cygwin installed is that you can then use "make" to build you a new version of org. Hope this is helpful. -- Mike
