General Unix "UWIN or Unix for WINdows, is developed and released by AT&T Laboratories and David Korn - the creator of Korn shell. UWin basically consists of a set of tools and libraries which helps application developers compile and run Unix applications natively on windows. The tools include a complete shell (Korn Shell) for Windows which is bundled with all the command line tools you find in Linux/Unix."

IIRC Cygwin was developed by Cygnus which was either bought by or was owned by Red Hat, who developed Cygwin, and used their own software in various places.... I maybe wrong but this is what i recall

Is Cygwin actively developed anymore ? There was once a rumour that you could install and run KDE using cygwin. I wonder how much of it is true....

You can ( http://kde-cygwin.sourceforge.net/kde3/screenshots.php )
I've run XFCE on top of cygwin myself, it's pretty cool. Handy too if you're in a situation where you have to run Windows but like to have access to Linux command line and graphical tools.

From looking at www.cygwin.com it would appear that there have been two updates to the cygwin dll in the last week.
