But I had no idea that the FSF was leading me into software slavery! Look! http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/emacs/windows/! And can you believe the README? "This directory contains source and precompiled distributions for GNU Emacs on Windows NT/2000/XP and Windows 95/98/Me. This port is a part of the standard GNU Emacs distribution from the Free Software Foundation; the precompiled distributions are provided here for convenience since the majority of Windows users are not accustomed to compiling programs themselves." I just can't believe it. I'm crushed - crushed, I tell you! - to discover that the great Richard M. Stallman and his FSF have been actively encouraging me all these years to imperil the very foundations of a free society - not to mention the moral purity of my immortal soul! - by using non-free software. It would be bad enough if they had only provided a url, but - a precompiled binary? O misery! O shame! O, betrayal!
