Cygwin to me is a Unix package distro which provides bits and flavours of POSIX,
Linux, and BSD userlands and APIs, that happens to be based on top of Windows,
and provides extensive functionality and interoperability with and under that
environment, which makes it easier working for or in many orgs and with most
users and systems.

The Cygwin release is similar to Linux kernel versions, which may vary
independent of distros and releases, but is also similar to distro releases like
Debian 10 Buster or Ubuntu 19 Disco Dingo, which mark the time and progress e.g.
1.0 (RTM), 1.5 (Legacy), 1.7 (No9x/IPv6/LSA/charsets/IPC), 2.0 (NoPasswd), 2.5.2
(LastXP), 2.6 (PostXP/Locales), 2.10 (NoKR/ssp/FORTIFY), ... in somewhat
arbitrary steps.

The file centralizes and standardizes distro info previously spread across
multiple files in some distros (four on Fedora) with many names depending on
distros: /etc/*[-_]{release,version} and can be handy identifying in scripts, on
logs, or creating/selecting network directories, where something was run or
originated; see:
http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/os-release
https://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/os-release.html

That's valuable for and to system/net/db support staff who have to support
diverse legacy (in the sense of not the current corp standard distro or release)
systems or contract/external staff who have to support multiple orgs with
different standard distros or releases.
