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.

Cygwin VS SFU ?

Anyone has used both of them extensively? Like compiling *nix tools on them or doing *nix devel work?

I have used Cygwin for a couple of years and am able to compile many *nix tools on it, sometime with minor tweaking on make files. Now does SFU compare in this area?
