What I use is the EmacsW32
(http://ourcomments.org/Emacs/EmacsW32.html). 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.
