You may try cygwin. Its a MS based Unix.
Here is the link http://www.cygwin.com/

A small cut out from the page:

Cygwin is a UNIX environment, developed by Red Hat, for Windows. It consists of two parts:
A DLL (cygwin1.dll) which acts as a UNIX emulation layer providing substantial UNIX API functionality.
A collection of tools, ported from UNIX, which provide UNIX/Linux look and feel.
The Cygwin DLL works with all non-beta, ix86 versions of Windows since Windows 95, with the exception of Windows CE.
