After many years of using Cygwin, I am saying a final goodbye to it thanks to GnuWin32. Much like Cygwin, GnuWin32 is also a port of common Linux command-line tools to Windows. However, it does not have any of the icky problems of Cygwin. There are no DLL problems (like with cygwin.dll), no special command windows, or directory naming conventions.
