Just wondering what IDE I should use. Seems textpad might not be enough....

I would really like to learn VAJ
What kind of a beast do I need to run it? (I use TextPad on my 64Mb Windows98 machine -is it worth even trying VAJ? )
Is there a stripped down version that is usable? What's the minimum configuration?

Max, what do you think of using a debugger and syntax highlighting?
I am truly enjoying your book. I just returned from a week in Belize and I have a photograph of me sitting on the sacrificial stone atop a Mayan ruin reading your book.
