The cygwin setup program only downloads and installs a
small selection of packages by default. You could simply
install all packages, or you could look on the web page
for the option to search packages and then search for
what you want. You'll find packages for compilation,
X-server, text processing, etc.
By the way: to find the vi editor, search for "vim" since
searching for "vi" returns too much to be useful.
Also if you know a little about programming, most "free"
software for linux can be downloaded (as source code) and
compiled using the cygwin tools to run under windows as
part of the cygwin installation.
I hope this info helps you.
