I was having a conversation at the last BUUG about a good unix-like environment on windows and promised a link:
It creates a bash environment and gives you access to a lot of the unix tools you're already used to. It also allows you to launch processes from within windows, so I've symlink'ed some tools I have to use (winword, iexplore) to make me feel more at home.
Apparently it has the ability to run some XFree86 programs, but I haven't tried that beyond rxvt, a terminal emulator.
I find this and a nicely customized copy of XEmacs to be a fine ersatz unix-on-windows.
ps Email me off-list if you want the hack that enables command-line completion on DOS. It's a lifesaver!
