Hi,
following a unpleasant discussion about cygwin usability
https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2018-04/msg00364.html
I wondered how many users cygwin have.


Younger people seem to prefer MSYS due to its use of pacman.
Admittedly, it is very convenient. Otherwise Cygwin (or MSYS) has
always been accepted (at least amongst everyone I talk to) as a
necessity.

Even if the updates aren't automatic due to the DLL issue, a CLI
interface to the updater would help.


the setup is usable as CLI.
Can be improved, but it is usable for most of the stuff.

PS: Post bottom is fine, but also trim is needed.

Regards
Marco
