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.

The single best feature is the free X windows emulator makes things easy. Works better and is less complicated then hummingbird or exceed.

Exceed *is* Hummingbird, and with that level of knowledge (of ignorance, if you wish), what makes you think Cygwin X 'works better and less complicated' than Exceed? What is so complicated in installing Exceed that apparently blew your little mind? What's about performance? What kind of benchmarks did you run?

Blah ...
