Actually, Cygwin is not the only Unixy shell in town, and ls does not
need a Unixy shell to be run on Windows, to say nothing of cd and
mkdir.  So to be useful _and_ correct, this should be rephrased as

  Rin Eshell if you are on Windows and don't have a Unixy shell
  (sh.exe) installed.

Of course, Eshell is much more than just a Unixy shell emulation, so
even the above is misleading...
