Cygwin

I'd primarily like this for the X11 server. I have to use windows boxes at school all the time, but they never have an X11 server installed, so I can't easily ssh to my home system (well, I can, but a command prompt isn't necessarily useful). (Also - a portable ssh client aside from putty would rock.)

Cygwin is an open source package available at http://www.cygwin.com

Can a portable Cygwin be hosting here on PortableApps? If it needs a maintainer, then I'd be willing to do it.

...since I'd love to see what Konqueror could do in Windows!

What Isn't Cygwin?
** Cygwin is not a way to run native linux apps on Windows. You have to rebuild your application from source if you want it to run on Windows.

good request

I second that aswell too.

Btw colinux and such are the way to run linux apps native on windows (no emulation - http://portableapps.com/node/5653).
