Connect to remote Unix desktops with Cygwin

In my work I'm expected to be on a Unix system 80% of the time, yet I also need to use office applications, a Windows-only VPN client, and some Windows-based asset management tools.

FSFE raises some arguments in its statement that I hadn't heard before, so I thought I should present them here to complete the picture. This is, after all, history we are living, and the explanation for Microsoft's alleged inability to comply earlier is intriguing. Also, it's important to remember who it was that did not quit and leave the field.
