Just so we get a chance to improve it, could you describe the shortcomings
you thought made it suck?

There is indeed a cygwin version of Emacs available, which may mimic the
Unix-behavior better than the native w32 version.  I think if you install
cygwin (go to the cygwin site and follow the download/install signs) you'll
be offered to install other packages, among which you should be able to
choose Emacs.
