I have PC Scheme and its not bad.  I do have a couple problems with it -
it doesnt support Hercules graphics, and every so often it goes away
with a "VM error" and just dies.  This happens completely unpredictably
and i cant get it to repeat at will.  

Other than that PC Scheme is good.  The documentation is huge and quite 
well done.  Its even fairly fast.
