[a small blurb :)]
If you're running NT or Win2K, you can also use "ttyfier" application
that allows running non-cygwin console applications in cygwin console
(including via telnet or ssh)

see http://ns.logos-m.ru/~deo/ttyfier.html for details.

with emacs, it's definitely better to use cygwin version, but it's not
perfect world, and there're closed applications, that cannot be
recompiled for cygwin, yet you may need them. I, for instance, run
dos version of netware RConsole this way.
