MSYS (the shell part of it) is basically a slightly outdated Bash ported
to Windows. It works perfect on my system (XP).

With MSYS, you copy and paste as you do with bash on *nix (mark text =
copy, middle mouse is paste and you enjoy _native_ compiled *nix
programs such as rm, copy and so on :-)

Here is some relevant output from the my MSYS Shell:
