Installing the minimal version of Unix that ships with Windows

Most people probably don't know Windows actually has an optional install of minimal Unix command line stuff you can use:
Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications
SUA also supports case-sensitive file names, job control, compilation tools, and the use of over 300 UNIX commands, utilities, and shell scripts. Because the subsystem installs separately from the Windows kernel, it offers true UNIX functionality without any emulation.
