General Unix Cygwin is a great alternative for those who feel constrained by working with the Windows environment. Cygwin lets you employ the best parts of each environment to fit your needs, whether through porting and development of applications, or simply using the applications in this flexible, powerful system.

Mingw/sshd/cygwin?

Does Msys/Mingw has sshd? This is one of the core reason i use Cygwin is since it has sshd. Once you install it, you can remotely ssh on your windows machines, get cygwin bash shell, and do all the cool stuff you can do locally on that machine.

Ofcourse XP has Remote desktop also which is awesome but still sometime you just want command line or sometime you are on a slow internet connection and at that time ssh'ing in your machine is great.
