Treat Windows like Unix with Sysinternals.com

For a variety of reasons, some having to do with expanding my technical horizons, some having to do with laziness, I’ve been spending more time with Windows XP these days and less time with Linux.

Things like Cygwin have made my sojourn in the Land of Windows smoother. Another source of incredibly helpful utilities has been Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell of Sysinternals. Thanks, guys!

In particular, programs like Process Explorer and TCPView have filled the grey, jagged hole created by the absence of lsof and netstat. (Yes, Cygwin comes with netstat, but TCPView is nicer.)

Any other Unix natives spending lots of time with Windows? What programs do you use to keep you sane?
