No POSIX Support in Windows XP

I hadn't realized that the the OS/2 and POSIX subsystems included with both Windows NT and Windows 2000 had been pulled from Windows XP; going by this document, they're also absent from Windows Server 2003. OS/2 support appears to have simply been discontinued, but the POSIX subsystem functionality at least can be obtained by installing the freely available Windows Services for UNIX (the actual download is on this page).
