Re: Best way to start on Windows : need advices

I'm just a dabbler, but I've found SLIME+SBCL to be a pretty nice environment. I don't bother with ASDF-install. I just unzip the archives I need into the sbcl directory. It's slightly annoying, but still easier than getting ASDF-install working under Windows.

Given the switch to ...
