Windows survival kit

Our most excellent sysadmin where I work, Simon, produces an internal distribution of tools that makes the windows command line environtment tolerable. It's just a compilation of ports of tools other people made, but in one convenient package on sourceforge, here. It contains a ton of stuff you'd like to have for tooling machines from the command line - notably all the common GNU utilities, a version of perl, some Windows specifics process interrogation tools and some DNS related tools. There's more to be done, but just having the package is tremendously useful.
