Port of the most important GNU utilities to Windows

I use it whenever I need to restore my sanity on Windows w/o diving into cygwin madness or mingw
So far, these unix commands work well in Windows 7 Pro 64-bit which is a relief given MS and their "show me the money" unix utilities cannot be installed unless I upgrade to a non-existent Windows 7 Ultimate release. So thank you very much for these as my decades old batch files continue to live on for several more years I hope.
Great tools, very useful for those of us who work on windows and have grown fond of certain unix based tools. Only gripe is that they are REALLY out of date... last build in main zipfile is from year 2000 and the update (only on the website, not here, for some strange reason) only brings a few up to year 2003.
Simply great for the Unix admin that has to cope with Windows from time to time. These utilities will find a home on the USB stick in my keyring.
My the most favorite util is wget.exe for running my web scripts.
