OK. Paul Thompson pointed out that he use Vincent Goulet's distribution on Windoze. So do I ... but it's only for windoze and I to use linux and open formats/open source whenever I can. Looks as if I should learn how to set up a git or subversion download for ESS on my Debian system. Anyone got any particular advice before I reinvent wheels, repeat mistakes many have made before me etc.?
