proTeXt - MiKTeX-based distribution for Windows

proTeXt aims to be an easy-to-install TeX distribution for Windows, based on MiKTeX.

Other tools

First, proTeXt adds a few independent tools to MiKTeX, notably TeXnicCenter and Ghostscript. If you want to see the exact contents, the .exe file is also a zip file; you can inspect it via unzip (on any platform).

To use ConTeXt within proTeXt or MiKTeX, you also need to install a Perl for Windows such as ActivePerl, and Ruby. (Later versions than the ones linked to here will most likely work too.) The contextgarden wiki has more information on MiKTeX and ConTeXt.
