I finally got the urge to learn Lisp after reading Paul Grahams "The Blub Paradox".
I'm surprised to say, "Nothing beats the feeling of accomplishing Hello World".
The last time I felt this was with C (using turbo c). Not sure with Java's hello world though XD.
Achieving this is just 2 steps:
1. Download 'Lisp in a box' from http://common-lisp.net/project/lispbox/ and unzip.
2. Run the launcher and type "Hello World".
