Bet you never heard of the Interix OS.

Interix is the name of an optional, full-featured POSIX and Unix environment subsystem for Microsoft's Windows NT-based operating systems.

Interix is a component of the Services for Unix (SFU) release 3.0 and 3.5 (this last one is distributed freely). The most recent releases of Interix, 5.2 and 6.0, are components of the Windows Server 2003 R2Windows Vista Enterprise and Ultimate editions and Windows Server 2008 under the name SUA [1] (Subsystem for Unix-based Applications).[2] Version 6.1 is included in Windows 7 (Enterprise and Ultimate) and Windows Server 2008 R2 (all editions).[3] It is set to be deprecated after the release of Windows 8.
