"Microsoft Serves Up a New Free UNIX Interoperability Tool" (SFU now free)
Message ID:
I'v enot seen this mentioned here and though it may be of some interest.

"The environment also provides the familiar tools that UNIX developers,
IT professionals, and administrators expect, so you'll see familiar
C and Korn shells, applications, and command-line utilities such
as gcc, make, emacs, vi, sendmail, and ftp. SFU also includes
Perl 5.6.1 and ActiveState's ActivePerl to ease migration of UNIX
administration scripts to Windows"

"Specifically, SFU 3.5 includes redesigned and performance-tuned
improvements to its NFS and NIS interoperability tools and Interix
environment; support for UNIX P-Thread applications, enabling
businesses to port over more complex, multi-threaded applications
than was previously possible; better POSIX support; and the latest
versions of X11 (X11R6.6) and many UNIX command-line utilities."
