You can install Interix and Cygwin simultaneously. There are some
interesting caveats -- in particular, don't expect to be able to run an
interactive program from one in the other's environment. (Their
stdin/stdout/stderr implementations are different enough to make them rather
messy when trying to have them interact.) They will also have a different
notion of "/", of course.
In fact, audio support for Interix in pkgsrc is accomplished through use of
the Cygwin "esd" daemon, using the esound client library on the Interix
