The Cygwin Project
Unix on Windows. (I mostly ignore the unix portion, and use the very nice egcs 1.1.1 compiler included with beta 20.1)
Mumit Khan's home page
Mumit Khan is a frequent contributer to the Cygwin mailing list, maintaining mingw32, the "minimalist" gnu-win32, a C++ compiler built from the egcs toolchain that links against CRTDLL.DLL for "unix" support (which is installed on virtually every computer that has 32-bit windows installed) instead of pulling in the entire cygnus library.
GNU-Win32 Related Projects
Another page run by Mumit Khan, this contains a listing of various projects/samples using the Cygnus GNU-Win32 library (among others).
Anders Norlandr's Gnu-win32 Page
