Cygwin isn't really all that similar to Linux. It's another implementation of POSIX with SYSV-style functions and GNU extensions. It's essentially a libc for Windows that is sufficient to build GNU utilities against, and shares nothing with Linux proper aside from the standardized API. You even need a cross-compiler to build for it on Linux.
