What was my option before as well,but the big difference was that you needed that the program you are looking for, was recompiled and included in Cygwin.

Now, you just add the relevant PPA from launchpad.net :-)

You are missing the point.

MS is not coping Linux.

You are installing the "real Ubuntu" from Canonical servers

The bit that MS did was a "translation layer" that convert the Kernel calls from all that binary identically software, to the Window's relevant kernel call.
