I'd agree with Mike and Scot's recommendation to use EmacsW32 for all the reasons they mentioned. I'd also recommend downloading cygwin. Current versions of EmacsW32 pick up the cygwin installation pretty easily and you really need it for command line tools like grep, ftp (for tramp) and git (for org-mode versioning); not to mention the command line itself. I've been using this setup for 3 or 4 years on various corporate laptops and it works very well.

Hi guys,

it may happen that I have to switch to Windows XP and since I have no
idea how XP works (up to this point in time I only ran Linux machines) I
thought to ask since I want to stick with org-mode: How do I get
org-mode and emacs run best with XP?  As far as I know there are at
least two ways to get emacs running; one is to simply download emacs,
two is downloading cygwin; if it is cygwin that I have to go with then
which emacs?  If I saw it right there are several choices ... ummm ...
any hints on that?

Thanx in advance
