My goal is to have only one Emacs install on my machine, use it under X most

X (and not in a cmd.exe...) when I got to get out of KDE (eg. when I've to
work with many windows programs and switch between them very frequently -
there's then no point in having emacs in a fullscreen KDE).

Any suggestion? (hope this is not too much OT)

You might want to look at <url: >

even on a 1Ghz 256M RAM P4.

What is really nice about the latest Cygwin, is that plain X Window is now rootless by default, so no Window Manager is needed.

Perhaps you can remove the root X window, by clicking on the X symbol in the system tray.

I saw somewhere a program, that is supposed to facilitate sharing between the X clipboard and the w32 clipboard.
If someone has a recommendation, please post!
