# Native Win32 Linux Commands for Windows 7

native Win32 Linux commands! This is a better option than running Cygwin since applications run on native (that word again) Win32 mode and not in an emulation. This means the commands run right off the bat, no need to rebuild apps from source, pretty cool eh? So to get these commands running on your computer, download the original archive here and also get the updates here. Uncompress all the files to some location like C:\bin and add this to your path environment. Commands included in the archive are the following:
