Franz bustin' out all over

In my latest Dr. Dobb's Journal, Franz had a two-page ad talking about what's possible and fast with AllegroCache.

Peter Coffee's latest column at eWeek, 'Exotic' Programming Tools Go Mainstream, has this to say:

Allegro CL has had two major updates since the last time eWEEK Labs reviewed it. The 8.0 version reflects performance-enhancing improvements so startling that if it played baseball, we'd expect a congressional probe.

Can't wait to get my hands on the upcoming Express Edition. I knew Lisp was what I wanted to learn so I was willing to get over the Emacs/Slime curve, but I understand people who'd want to explore with an IDE to see if Lisp is for them, and it would be good to be able to recommend a hassle-free Windows IDE.

JabberWocky runs rather well with CLISP, I've used it successfully with Chapter 1 of Siebel's Practical Common Lisp.

The keyboard bindings are a little weird, and needs redefining for those who are used to windows binding. Write to me if you want my configuration file.
