'Having whatever Linux' working like cygwin under MS-Windows ??

A fedora, Ubuntu or Debian like Cygwin on your desktop ?

I tried with the opensources-Vmware-like, and it is too slow ...:-(

You could try the microsoft virtual PC - free as in beer as of recently.
Did only use it for a customer to run OS/2 on a M$ box but that was running real good and quick.

Not much is going to be as fast as Cygwin because those all take up a large amount of RAM. Cygwin is just a subset of features ported to Windows, so they use less RAM.
