    You'll need to download cygwin. Go to www.cygwin.com. Windows also has the features you mention and are easy to use.

    Cygwin is nice. You could also grab the vmware player, an appliance, and do something fun like run a *nix of your choice under Windows.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
