I've never tried MS Services for Unix, but I love Cygwin. My work laptop is Windows XP and I have Cygwin installed. I like running a bash prompt in Cygwin via Console ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/console/ ). It gives me all the command-line goodness (bash, grep, sed, awk, pipes) I want, plus SSH access to my Windows system.
What I like least about Cygwin is that you cannot install binary apps from inside of Cygwin (like yum or apt). Instead you need to run the setup.exe utilitiy.
Like I said though - I cannot compare it to MS Services for Unix.
