in reply to Windows "development environment"?

You might also look at the ConTEXT editor and grabbing a copy of Apache for your laptop. I use it on my laptop with Vista. I'm still hassling with Apache and Vista though.

Hope that helps!

p.s. If any of the monks know of a good tutorial to get Apache running on Vista, please let me know.

    Good luck (sincerely) on your question but as you clearly know, doing anything on Vista is difficult at best. Heck, I'm still having trouble getting IE to behave (it misrenders a lot of valid .html and css; doesn't get prologs right on .php pages, etc ad nauseum). FWIW, though, Apache 1.x is reputed (untested!) to be installable on Vista.
      Thanks for that!

      I do have 2.2.4 installed, but running is something else.

      I did read on one site that running Apache in XP compatibility mode is the ticket, but I still haven't gotten it to run as a service like on a straight XP intalliation.

      Gotta love Vista... :p
