gcc and vim (but not gvim) very well indeed. There was one
trick, which I documented in the appdb at
You have to replace some cygwin symlinks with native
(linux or macosx) symlinks to get gcc to work.
You might try using Codeweavers Crossover to solve the
"where do I get Wine?" problem. Alternately try
finding Wine packages elsewhere, e.g. http://thisismyinter.net/

though I'm considering installing Ubuntu since all the OS X tools seem to be ported from Linux.
Not Linux, BSD: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bsd

There is no need for Cgywin because MAC OS X is BSD based and has a BASH shell by default. Therefore there is no need to emulate a UNIX environment or a BASH shell.
Ideally, yes. However if you'd read the original question, you'd see that the guy's teacher did something really strange: he wrote a system consisting of mixed .bat and shell scripts.
