IIRC the POSIX layer that M$ implemented was there just to get government 
contracts and it's supposedly not very useful for real development. Does 
anyone have some hands-on experience with it?

Another thing is that you'd need an X server running on Windows to get 
anything graphical. Not that it's a problem, just an observation.
