I just downloaded emacs from the gnu site: <http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/windows/Getting-Emacs.html> <http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/windows/> As others already said, a native emacs is better integrated. Meanwhile, I can use nearly the same .emacs files in Linux and Windows. Cygwin is helpful in itself. Since you're used to Linux, it will help you in the beginning and if you set your path accordingly, you can use cygwin commands in the Windows command shell as well. On the other side, it doesn't hurt, if you become familiar with Windows tools. Regards, Olaf
