I am writing some e-books on free software. I am recommending TeX (of course) 
and Context instead of LaTeX. The vast majority of my readers will be using 
some flavor of MSWindows. Unfortunately there have been problems in 
synchronizing Context releases and Miktex releases, in re. hyphenation and 
fonts in general. I need to recommend a download package for readers who will 
be newcomers to the world of TeX. Which is the safest pointer? I see Miktex 
as a possibility but also the stripped versions of the TeX distribution 
maintained on the Context site. So how would you start an absolute newbie to 
e.g., Context and pdfetex? Where would you point them for their first
