Here's a clever Windows utility that allows Linux to run natively under Windows. I've used it to run Linux servers, X apps, and to compile stuff. Your entire Linux file system resides in an ordinary Windows file.

run unix and xp together

Yes, VMware is a popular product that can host multiple operating systems including Linux.
VMware is a commercial product. coLinux is free and open-source.
https://www.vmware.com/products/ws/

Virtual PC (now Microsoft) is another one. I think it's free:
https://www.microsoft.com/virtualpc/

All these methods have some limitations compared to booting your computer directly into Linux.

unix for windows xp

If you can connect to a server which has installed Linux/Unix OS, then you can also practice it. It is more convenience. HaHa.

xp run unix

I think you can use a "live" distribution of Linux that can boot from CD, or use a virtual environment like vmware or better VirtualBox (hxxp://www.virtualbox.org/) that is free but you must install the Unix os in this environment or you must use a image than you can freely found on Internet.

No, cygwin is just a poor "emulator"... nothing more.
