unxutils Alternatives

    unxutils is described as 'Here are some ports of common GNU utilities to native Win32. In this context, native means the executables do only depend on the Microsoft C-runtime (msvcrt.dll) and not an emulation layer like that provided by Cygwin tools'. There are six alternatives to unxutils for Windows, Linux, Mac and BSD. The best alternative is Cygwin, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like unxutils are MSYS2 (Free, Open Source), gow (Free, Open Source), ezwinports (Free, Open Source) and Cash (Free, Open Source).

    2. MSYS2 is an independent rewrite of MSYS, based on modern Cygwin (POSIX compatibility layer) and MinGW-w64 with the aim of better interoperability with native Windows software.
