Gow (Gnu On Windows) is the lightweight alternative to Cygwin. It uses a
convenient Windows installer that installs about 130 extremely useful
open source UNIX applications compiled as native win32 binaries.

Features & benefits:

  • Ultra light: Small, light subset (about 10 MB) of of very useful UNIX
    binaries that do not have decent installers.
  • Shell window from any directory: Adds a Windows Explorer shell window
    so that you can right-click on any directory and open a command
    (cmd.exe) window from that directory.
  • Stable binaries: All commands are kept up to date but also as stable as
