## Emacs on Windows XP -> Cygwin

```Hello,

```
as mentioned recently I have a Thinkpad with Windows XP running. I installed emacs 22.x on it the way I read it someplace on the internet ... not under C.\Programme but under C.\emacs instead. Works ... only printing from within emacs does not work. However, now I found out there is Cygwin ... well, looks great so far. Now here the question: AFAIU Cygwin is "best choice" if one is wanting to have XP working Linux.like plus having some Xnix tools too. To enjoy Cygwin, am I to deinstall emacs the way I have it now, then to install Cygwin and reinstall emacs only this time as a Cygwin package? Does this sound reasonable? I don't mind much installing/reinstalling ... as long as it is the best way to have all things running greatly ... :-)
