Win = "start". OSX = "open". Cygwin = ??

A quick question:
On my Mac I use "open <object>" to open a file / directory with the
default action for that
Open finder in that dir:
%> open .
Open a PDF with my default PDF viewer:
%> open blahblah.pdf
On a Windows box from cmd.exe:
Open my default browser at www.sun.com:
C:\> start http://www.sun.com
Open explorer in a dir:
C:\> start .
"start" doesn't work with cygwin (via rxvt / bash).
Anyone know of an alternative for cygwin?
