cygwin has bash and some other shells available through the package installer.

But given that cygwin is an "emulated" but not true Unix environment, your mileage may vary. Not necessarily all scripts will work sensibly in cygwin.

We use cygwin for production purposes, mostly on large Windows print servers to call rsync via ssh. Works great.

perl for cygwin does some interesting things though.
