There's also cygwin, which has lots of advantages -- a linux-like
environment that is almost a "free VM" under windows.  IIRC it has a
full tex implementation (for free, of course) and emacs and several
other tools.  I can boot up my personal Windows VM and check if you
like, or you can go ahead and directly install it to check.
Installation is rather easy if you have a high BW channel.
