Re: [O] Emacs+org on Windows 7 pro

The idea in scimax for windows is to include an Emacs git submodule. See https://github.com/jkitchin/scimax/blob/master/install-scimax-win.sh for how I suggest to install it. Assuming you have git installed, you can run:
bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jkitchin/scimax/master/install-scimax-win.sh)"

and it will download everything for you.

On completion, there is some helm, and some ivy. You can configure it as you see fit. There are some things I like about each one.

That is good (don’t need it on non-Windows platforms) and bad (Now I have to get one for windows from somewhere else, maybe jmax?.)

All these different completion packages irritate me.
I’m using some helm, let’s see how it works with ivy.
(Luckily I have two 24“ monitors, a lot of room to place notes to remind me of new commands.[1])

I’m an org user, I love moving targets:-)

I’ll give it a try[2].
