There are no considerable differences between gromacs on CYGWIN and
LINUX, to my knowledge. If you are interested in running gromacs on
WINDOWS-desktop, I would also suggest to look at the systems based on
http://www.colinux.org/ kernel . My broad experience with them shows
they are very powerful to run both gromacs and (manifold)
visualizarion utitilies.

Good luck.
