The third way, and the way I do it, is to run a Linux inside Windows. I
dropped cygwin on my pc at work and use andLinux now (http://andlinux.org),
which is running a linux kernel in a Win32 process (as a service in
background). X applications are exported to a local W32 XServer. This is
much faster than X apps compiled for cygwin. You'll have clipboard sharing
between the Linux and W32 windows, too.

This article led me to andLinux:
