Heard of http://cygwin.com? (yes) Should you edit the platform for pico among others? (yes) Should you add nano to the list? (yes)

    Yes, and Cygwin removes (or helps to alleviate) this criticism:

    "I tried the windows port, but it just loses so much without the shell power of Linux."

    of using Emacs in a Windows environment.

    All in all, an interesting comparison matrix, though. I'd like to see this maintained with links to pages of pro/con comments for each.

      This is exactly the reason I prefer EMACS on win32. Eshell comes as close as possible (for me at least) to the Unix shell. The thing I like so much about eshell above dos and 4dos is screen scrolling. I wonder why Active State doesn't bundle XEMACS with Perl. That's my $.02.
