Portable Unix Tools

I just stumbled on this collection of Windows ported Unix commands. What's nice is that they aren't dependent on Cygwin or any other libraries. This would seem to make them ideal candidates for inclusion on your thumb drive.

Just think, next time you sit down at a Windows box, you'll have goodies such as sed, awk, wget and touch available.

This is handy, if only to get a versions of zip, gzip, bzip and unrar that can be used without first digging around on the net.
