Chocolatey: babun
https://babun.github.io/

A customized Cygwin for Linux on Windows: Zsh, Bash, git and other Linux software, all pre-configured.

Can install other software provided by Cygwin.

  • 712, 774 - apparently abandoned, last updated 2016-05-02.

My configuration specific to Babun is currently scattered throughout my git repository, just findinall Babun (using my findinall() )

There are several pages for it, but I have this one working:

Xtoolwait notably decreases the startup time of an X session by reducing the load on the X server and Linux.

It starts an X client in the background, waits for a window to be mapped on the root window, and then exits. It can improve performance for users who start a bunch of X clients automatically (for example, xterm, xlock, xconsole, whatever) when the X session starts.
