I do use MinGW.  MinGW is just the native Windows ports of GNU
software, such as GCC and Make.  The compiler I use is GCC in its
MinGW port, but I don't use MSYS and its runtime DLL, so the ported
programs run natively on Windows.

The shell I use is an old port of zsh.  It has some bugs (so it will
not currently run a typical configure script), but it's good enough to
run Makefile's that need a Unixy shell.
