It's probably years since I've looked at Cygwin. I have a Linux only
Laptop now and 3 or 4 distros on VMware on a dedicated Windows XP
laptop. My much older laptop till recently multboots
Win98SE/WinFWG3.11/DOS, NT4.0, Win2K and Debian, We wiped NT4.0 and
Debian for a bit more space for Win98 & Win2000 legacy stuff
I can't see myself bothering with X on Windows in future, and the way
it's going maybe not bothering with Windows at all.
