LXer: UWIN - Unix for Windows (When you have to use it)

Published at LXer:

There are times when you are forced to use a Windows machine and there is no way of getting your hands on a PC running Linux. This situation is common if your office PCs all run windows and the company policy forbids you from installing an alternate OS on it. And you feel your productivity is severely hampered because certain tasks - which could easily be accomplished using the plethora of command line tools in Linux - do not have an easy solution in Windows.

I'm a relative newbie in all these matters, but is UWin better than Cygwin?
