cygwin


have you guys used Cygwin?
it's a unix-like environment for windows.You can run Linux apps under cygwin but you have to rebuild the app from source.
I heard someone say that KDE could be run under cygwin, but i dont know how to configure and install it.
anyone knows that?

I've used cygwin, but no native GUI. I've used XDMCP, though, and it's working nicely.
