Heavy Cygwin user here. It is used in my environment for cross-compilation. Everything should be done using / separators in Cygwin, not \. So /cygdrive/c, /cygdrive/d always prefaces the path rather than C:\ or D:\, which won't parse. It is, essentially, a bash environment, including that git completions work properly. Backslash ends up doing what it would in bash.
