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.

Just, select "Download packages to local folder" (or something to that effect) in options, and you don't need to download "everything" again even if a mirror fails.

I'm not upset about downloading. I'm upset about reselecting packages. I spend 20 minutes customizing packages, seriously 20 minutes!
