You can get binary versions of gnu emacs at
No cygwin required. I usually untar it in Program Files and then
create a shortcut to bin/runemacs on my desktop. I use them it all
the time on win32; after putty and winscp it's the first thing I
install on a new windows box. Only thing that keeps me sane in
If you already like emacs, emacs + ipython are a great combination
that work well together. You can, for example, configure ipython and
emacs so that from ipython you can do
In : pwd
In : edit test.py
and have test.py appear in a emacs buffer in the running emacs
session. Never tried this on windows, though.

mode has special support for maptlotlib pylab mode, and will
