If it's *just* for rsync stuff, I might suggest to install piecemeal
what you need:
If you want other *nix tools and functionality, then consider cygwin.
Cygwin's great (installing it right now, in fact), but it's not the
solution to *every* problem.
It's also one of those things that you'll need to use to get a feel for
it. Don't be a PHB! :-)
