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.

Member since:

I use Cygwin in work, in fact right now:) I have windowmaker installed, i can do ssh to Linux server and start for example firefox there and it appears right into my windows desktop.

Previously i used Exceed, but switched to Cygwin. Had many problems with Exceed, international characters did not work, could not figure out how to connect to server with ssh (telnet worked), had problems with copy/paste etc. And its commercial too, i dislike spending money. Of course i needed some time in beginning to configure Cygwin properly, but now it has worked like i want about ~3 years.
