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
