GOW ( Gnu On Windows ) – Linux Commands on Windows

Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

Gow (Gnu On Windows) is the lightweight alternative to Cygwin. It uses a convenient Windows installer that installs about 130 extremely useful open source UNIX applications compiled as native win32 binaries. It is designed to be as small as possible, about 10 MB, as opposed to Cygwin which can run well over 100 MB depending upon options.


  1. You said these are some of the commands but not all of the commands and you did gow –list   If those are not all then where are the rest?  Your description says there are about 130 commands. I count 117 commands.   I guess 117(all that gow –list shows, as of writing) is all of them and gow –list shows all of them. I guess when you said some of the commands you meant only that you weren't going to go through every single command in your video and you didn't mean that gow –list was only showing some of the commands.
