Freshmeat page:


Cygwin is a DLL which provides a Unix emulation environment for Windows. The Cygwin environment provides a complete port of such development utilities as gcc, binutils, gdb, make, etc., as well as a number of useful utilities.

The Cygwin net release is a mini-distribution including many key OSS libraries and utilities - XFree86, auto*, openssh, apache, squid, mutt, postgresql ....

Finally, note that the advogato project CygWin is an incorrect spelling - Cygwin is not capitalised mid way through, as that provides incorrect emphasis on the windows aspect.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
