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.

An alternative to a Cygwin installation is XLiveCD which basically is Cygwin and X-server on a cd.
Get the ISO here:

Burn it on a disc and plug it in. Or mount it with Daemon-tools as I do :-)

It doesn't have everything from Cygwin but it has a lot of useful stuff such as SSH.
