The words of the ignorant, in my opinion.  Cygwin has done an
excellent job of maintaining currency and usefulness.
Indeed.  I have been using cygwin since 1996-7.  Can't remember the exact year, but it has been God-sent, and it has been in every Windows machine I have had control.  Just my 0.02. Thanks.


Thank you to everyone who has replied to my question whether this was a good use case for Cygwin!  It was great to read all of the replies and see that I'm in sync with this project & its users / developers.

As others have basically stated, it's like a Windows 10 Swiss Army knife - pull it out of your pocket when needed and get the job done without a hassle.
