I've been using Cygwin for years now and it's been a great tool for porting Linux programs to my Windows computer. It's easy to install and configure, and I've been able to get a lot of use out of it. It's also great for running command line programs, which can be a huge help when trying to troubleshoot or debug an issue. Highly recommended!

From the developer:

Cygwin is a collection of tools which provide a Linux look and feel environment for Windows. It a DLL (cygwin1.dll) which acts as a Linux API layer providing substantial Linux API functionality. You must know that it is not a way to run native Linux apps on Windows. You must rebuild your application from source if you want it to run on Windows.
