Cygwin has always been and will always be a work in progress.  The rule
of thumb "does it work on Linux" should be applied to all that you do

chances are, something will change.

I feel the need to correct you slightly.  Although Linux is a good model, Cygwin primarily strives to be a good *POSIX* platform, so there may be cases where the two intentionally differ.
