Pam. Regex. Nas. Minimal SYStem. MSYS is a collection of GNU utilities such as bash, make, gawk and grep to allow building of applications and programs which depend on traditionally UNIX tools to be present. It is intended to supplement MinGW and the deficiencies of the cmd shell. An example would be building a library that uses the autotools build system.
Users will typically run ". /configure" then "make" to build it. The configure shell script requires a shell script interpreter which is not present on Windows systems, but provided by MSYS. A common misunderstanding is MSYS is "UNIX on Windows", MSYS by itself does not contain a compiler or a C library, therefore does not give the ability to magically port UNIX programs over to Windows nor does it provide any UNIX specific functionality like case-sensitive filenames. Installing MSYS Up to MSYS 1.0.11, all components of MSYS were distributed in one single installer you downloaded and ran. For convenience, you can follow the instructions below to install 1.0.11. Cool, but obscure unix tools. Just a list of 20 (now 28) tools for the command line.
Some are little-known, some are just too useful to miss, some are pure obscure -- I hope you find something useful that you weren't aware of yet!

If you're not familiar with NX, these links might help: Neatx was developed by Google for an internal project. That project is now finished, and the source was released for the community to use/develop/benefit from. There is no active development at this time.

There are no releases. Xming. Xming is the leading X Window System Server for Microsoft Windows®.
It is fully featured, lean, fast, simple to install and because it is standalone native Windows, easily made portable (not needing a machine-specific installation or access to the Windows registry). Xming is totally secure when used with SSH and optionally includes an enhanced Plink SSH client and a portable PuTTY replacement package. Xming installers include executable code, and libraries, only built by Colin Harrison (Project Xming's chief developer). Mesa with GLX, or Microsoft WGL, provide interactive OpenGL® 2D and 3D network transparent graphics rendering. AIGLX is available for graphics cards that support hardware-accelerated OpenGL. PuTTY is Project Xming's preferred and integrated X terminal emulator for Microsoft Windows: superseding any requirement for a cumbersome POSIX API compatibility layer and simulated directory mount points. Xming is cross-compiled on Linux for Microsoft Windows, using X.Org,
