Linux without sighted help

As I said, I use Cygwin for light tasks. And modern Cygwin will run a rather
impressive bunch of *nix programs. If there's a difference between an
emulator and a simulator that may be important to dictionary writers, but
the main thing here is that you can switch between Unix and Windows stuff
without having to reboot. If you use brltty the experience is much closer to
Linux than if you use speech.
I'm curious as to how one runs a kernel under Linux.
There are things that Cygwin won't do but there are an awful lot of them
that it will. How it compares with a virtual machine I have no idea.
