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 isnít that bad, it has some nice points even, but I donít use it. I use MSYS. The one thing I never liked about Cygwin (this is shared with MSYS to a large extend) is that it is separate from windows. It dose not really integrate well. I canít use bash to browse windows and my python, perl or whatever install is not available under windows. So the one thing that could make Cygwin cool and useful to me just isnít there.
