Microsoft have released two versions of their UNIX utilities over the years.
Both are based on the old MKS Utilities.  If you can still find it, the
first version is smaller and more useful than the second (~400MB) version if
all you want to have are Windows versions of ls, grep and the other UNIX
commands that our fingers can't seem to forget.  

Regards,

Dave.
