mingw is a direct port,
cygwin is a POSIX port, which then ports the tools using POSIX.
mingw is faster and more minimal
cygwin has everything you would expect in a Linux distribution
Both have shells (sh, bash) ported to windows.
The Bloodshed DevC++ mentioned by the other poster uses mingw by
default, but it can be set up to use cygwin.
DevC++ is open source and cross platform, so the same development
environment can theoretically be used on many platforms (nice)
