+The *host computer* is the thing you use to develop applications. It runs all
+your tools, editors, documentation viewers, etc. To get started with RTEMS
+development you need other tools. This includes a native C, C++ and Python
+development environment. Please make sure that you can build native C/C++
+applications on your host computer. You must be able to build native Python C
+modules. Usually you have to install a Python development package for this.
+Please have a look at the :ref:`Host Computer <host-computer>` chapter for the
+glory details. In particular :ref:`Microsoft Windows <microsoft-windows>` user
+should do this.
