MinGW

Minimalist GNU For Windows

Note that MinGW is a separate project from CygWin, but it’s easy to confuse the two because their aims are somwhat similar, and because CygWin itself includes some of MinGW (headers and libraries, I think). Also note that building Emacs with MinGW works fine, but building Emacs with Cygwin is troublesome. See BuildingOnWindowsTableofContents for the gory details.
