WinZsh

Program: WinZsh Version:3.0
Author: Open Source
Website: [ http://zsh-nt.sourceforge.net/ ]
Download: [ 383.9 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: The Z shell is a Unix shell with loads of features. It is designed for interactive use, however it is also a powerful scripting language. Zsh is compatible with the Bourne shell, and is also highly compatible with bash and ksh. WinZsh is a native port of zsh to Windows. In this context, native means that it does not depend on any third party emulation libraries such as Cygwin or MSYS. This port was originally created by Amol Deshpande in 1997. It was updated and maintained until 2001, at which time it was abandoned. In 2010, with the original author's blessing the code was relicensed under the 3-clause BSD license and development restarted on Sourceforge.net®. WinZsh is an alternative to cmd.exe. It can be used as an interactive shell for Windows, as a tool to port existing Unix sh/ksh/bash/zsh scripts to Windows or to write original cross-platform shell scripts (replacing .bat or .cmd files).

Linux Reader

Program: Linux Reader Version:2.1
Author: DiskInternals, ltd.
Website: [ http://www.diskinternals.com/linux-reader/ ]
Download: [ 19.7 Mb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: How to get safe and quick access to alternative file systems? DiskInternals Linux Reader is a new easy way to do this. This program plays the role of a bridge between your Windows and Ext2/Ext3/Ext4, HFS and ReiserFS file systems. This easy-to-use tool runs under Windows and allows you to browse Ext2/3/4, HFS and ReiserFS file systems. There are a number of evident merits of the program, which you should know. First of all, DiskInternals Linux Reader is absolutely free. Secondly, the program provides for read-only access and does not allow you to make records in file system partitions. This guarantees that the interference in an alterative file system will not affect the work of Linux later. Apart from this, it is necessary to note, that it gives you an opportunity to use common Windows Explorer for extracting data. A preview option for pictures is one more pleasant point, which is worth mentioning.

win-bash

Program: win-bash Version:N/A
Author: N/A
Website: [ http://win-bash.sourceforge.net/ ]
Download: [ 5.6 MB ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: win-bash is a Windows port of the famous GNU bash. Unlike other bash ports for Windows (e.g. the cygwin bash ), the win-bash needs no special environment or DLLs. There is just one binary and that's it. win-bash is based on nt_bash which was an early bash port for Windows NT started by Mountain Math Software some years ago. As far as I know, the nt_bash port project stopped in alpha status and has never been finished.
