<p>Common Lisp comes in many different <a href="/implementations">flavors, or implementations</a>. Two popular ones are Steel Bank Common Lisp (SBCL) and Clozure Common Lisp (CCL).</p>
<p>If you are a newbie or you want to get started as fast as possible, then <a href="https://portacle.github.io/">Portacle</a> is probably your best option. Portacle is a multiplatform, complete IDE for Common Lisp. It includes Emacs, SBCL, Git, Quicklisp, all configured and ready to use.</p>

<p>If you're a newbie to Lisp, it might be easiest to pick one of the two implementations above and get started, without worrying too much about which implementation is best for you. However, there are a lot of implementations that all have their pros and cons. For a complete list, see <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Lisp#List_of_implementations">Wikipedia's big list of CL implementations</a>.</p>
<p>A good way to get started with Lisp is to go through <a href="http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/">Practical Common Lisp book</a>.

<p>Also, you may want check out <a href="http://articulate-lisp.com">Articulate Lisp site</a> for getting started on Common Lisp ecosystem. </p>
<p>Look <a href="/implementations">here</a> for other Common Lisp compilers.</p>
