I second Mike's advice. EmacsW32 is very carefully done, and you will get
much easier access to the rest of your windows filesystem with a native
Windows Emacs. And if you're a Linux user, you'll ease the pain of
transition with cygwin (the windows command line always seemed hopeless to
me). I've not done the work to get the the EmacsW32 port to work with
cygwin yet, though I did it with a windows Vim once. Basically it involves
getting Emacs to invoke cygwin as its shell, and optionally, cygwin to
invoke the windows Emacs binary when you type 'emacs' from the cygwin
command line. This way you can use emacs to edit your files from the cygwin
command line, and the cygwin command line to do stuff from within emacs.
