I'm going to be working in Windows for the next couple of weeks as I'm
writing some documents to do with Migration and comparisons between
Exchange and Linux based mail servers. I have to use different mail
packages in Windows to test this, and crossover is OK, but not a true
system for Windows users.

So because I'm gonna be in Winders, I could do with a way of feeling at
home and kicking open a bash shell to check a few things out, or being
able to start KDE/Gnome... I'm not going to install VMWare, because I'm
not paying for a licence, I was thinking of using cygwyn.. Has anyone here
had any exposure to it? What is it like? Does anyone have a decent HOW-TO
for it? I could sit and play, but I really don't have the time, I need to
get on and do these documents so I can be back in Linux ASAP..
