Don't forget about cygterm and transparent PuTTY!

This is a really great post--thanks for the information. As a user of the mutt e-mail client with vim on cygwin through PuTTY, the information about color setting was very helpful.

Don't forget about putty-ntrans, the transparent PuTTY that lets you see the background image through (in part or totally) the PuTTY session. And cygterm, the PuTTY with support for cygwin.
