(You probably know this, but just in case...) You don't need anything
as awesome as Cygwin, if *all* you need is an ssh client for Windows.
You can use PuTTY, which is Windows-native (doesn't need cygwin1.dll
or anything of the sort), and can be run as a GUI application or a
command-line application, at your preference.
